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!
Kent Connects will be hosting many more of these type of events, keep checking the website for more information.
