The Roundtable team


Proceedings commenced with some thought-provoking statistics. Surveys show that the fastest growing technology companies focus on growing talent, but that it is predicted there will be 800,000 unfilled vacancies for digital roles by 2020


The discussion covered the following: • How do you attract people and is a lack of available talent holding you back? • Right people, right roles • Coded message • Apprenticeships: you’re hired • Planning ahead • Offshore options • Acquisition trail • Brand power • Diversity agenda • Tech attractions • Are you positive about 2019?


Andrew Janes: Chief people officer, Redwood Technologies
