Preparing for a digital future

On Thursday 15th October, we organised a Digital Skills Networking Evening, held as the Royal Wells Hotel in Tunbridge Wells and it was a great success. The topic of discussion was ‘Are you prepared for the digital future?‘, the speakers on the night were:

William Benson – CEO Tunbridge Wells Borough Council
Lizzie Hodgson – Founder of Think Nation
Dorine Flies – EPIK
Jon Pratty – Brighton Digital Festival
Simon Thompson – University of Kent

It was a very informative evening, it left guests wanting another networking event as the topic of ‘going digital’ is at the tip of many people’s lips, with so many questions, ideas and thoughts about digital, 2 hours simply was not enough!
