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!
Our next meetup is on Thursday 6th June in the Workshop at Exeter Phoenix. It’s our regular gig of 3 lightning talks, dicussions and friendly networking.

FAQ Q. I’m not a tech person, can I still attend? A. YES! We welcome those working in tech and those who want to find out more about it
We try and be as transparent as possible at TechExeter, and one of the ways we do that is to report back stats on our events.
What follows are a few statistics from our call for speakers for this year’s tech conference on the theme of security and hacking.
Please note: These are statistics from people who submitted talks for our conference. Not everyone answered our diversity monitoring questions. We advertised for speakers on our website, social media, and through our member network.
Join us for our first ‘Let’s Play’ event, where we will be playing and discussing this months chosen game below. We’ll also be learning a bit about games design and of course there’ll be time to chat to like-minded gamers. Feel free to bring your laptops and gamepads to show us what you’ve been playing lately!
