Exeter College Coffee Morning

We held our first ever mini meetup at Exeter College with speakers from TechExeter and Digital Exeter – we often struggle with engaging young people so we decided to take our meetup directly to the students!

Al Mclintock, Industry Placement Liaison Officer initially came to speak to TechExeter earlier in the year to talk about T-levels, and she was thrilled with the idea that we could run a version of our meetup aimed directly at the students

After an introduction from Al and Myself (centre above), we had talks from Sarah Marks (right) – Head of Marketing and Communications at Rezcomm, and Rick Timmis (left) – Engineering Manager for Dell Boomi.

After the talks, the students came along to a networking session where we had a dozen members of our tech+digital community available for students to talk to face to face.

It was a wonderful morning with a great buzz – our next one is in the autumn term and we hope to repeat the success of this joint venture between us and the college!

AWS Summit – We Power Tech

Whilst at this year’s AWS Summit London, I had a chance to chat with the lovely people on the We Power Tech stand.

At AWS, we believe the future of tech is every color, gender, belief, origin, and community. The future of tech is accessible, flexible, and inclusive. We all have a long way to go before realizing this future. Join the We Power Tech community to meet allies and leaders who are powering the future. Build skills, get engaged with the community, and inspire the next generation. 

These pronoun badges are a great idea, and one that I think we’ll be bringing to our conferences and meetups. Even as a cis male, wearing a badge helps to raise awareness and normalise pronoun choice, which can only be a good thing!

Digital Health Conference in Exeter 2018

Wednesday 6th June 2018 at the University of Exeter

Small and big ideas in digital health & care are making a difference every day

We want to bring together those interested in using digital solutions and technologies to address everyday problems and challenges. We have an exciting day of masterclasses and presentations with lots of opportunities for discussions.

This conference is aimed at researchers, clinicians and practitioners in health and social care, as well as developer/technology partners – all coming together for a day of learning and sharing.

Suitable for novices and experts alike, the day will explore the current projects taking place locally, and how to move from idea to final product within health and social care.

Whether you are new to digital health and care, working on or have developed an app, checking out big data, artificial intelligence or virtual reality, join us for a thought provoking day.
