Please note that this event is for tech businesses and tech industry leaders

In today's rapidly evolving landscape, the demand for skilled professionals is greater than ever. But here's the million-dollar question: are we equipped to meet the challenges of today and the uncertainties of tomorrow?

Join other tech businesses and tech industry leaders, for an insightful Skills Roundtable, hosted by Technology Connected, the organisers of Talent4Tech. We'll peel back the layers of the ever-shifting landscape of emerging qualifications and the relentless demands of the tech industry.

What to expect

At this roundtable, we won't just be exploring today's needs – we'll be forecasting the demands of the industry five years down the line. Are today's graduates equipped with the skills needed to make an impact from day one, or are there gaps that need addressing? From technical prowess to essential business acumen and softer skills, we'll discuss the spectrum of capabilities critical for driving innovation and success in the tech industry.

Your voice matters

Led by Avril Lewis, Managing Director of Technology Connected and a member of the Cardiff Capital Region Skills Board, this roundtable isn't just a discussion – it's a call to action. 

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive in, armed with your insights and ideas on bridging the skills gap and future-proofing our tech businesses and industries, while nurturing the next generation of tech talent.

What we will be discussing

  • What does the tech industry need NOW?
  • What do we need over the next five years?
  • Are we struggling to recruit the right talent?
  • What are we REALLY looking for when we're hiring?
  • Are technical skills enough, or do we need a new breed of professionals armed with business savvy and soft skills?
  • In a world where qualifications are a dime a dozen, are they truly delivering what we need?

This event is free to attend and refreshments will be included.
