Event description

Description

The Australian tech community has become increasingly vocal about the need for high-level talent, which has become even more of a concern in light of changes to the 457 visa. But so far little has been done to identify what exact skills are in high demand in our marketplace, and how that compares to the competitive talent landscape globally.

The StartupAUS Talent Gap report answers these questions and highlights key inevitable changes to our future workforce. Thanks to in-depth interviews with high level Australian scale-up founders and broader local job market data from LinkedIn, the report sheds light on the most sought after technical expertise that is set to impact hiring trends.

Join University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Microsoft as we celebrate the launch of the Startup Talent Gap report, dissect the results of and seek to answer these burning questions. With a solid foundation in tech being key to equip tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, we'll dissect the implications of the talent gap in Australia, and analyse the profiles of some of the most cutting edge and in demand roles. We’ll also seek to uncover what these career pathways look like, and how we as a combined ecosystem can enable these - now.

We’ll be provoking a lively discussion with a stellar lineup of speakers including:

  • Attila Brungs, Vice Chancellor & President, UTS

  • Steven Worrall, Managing Director, Microsoft Australia

  • Alex McCauley, CEO, StartupAUS

  • Nick O'Donnell, Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs APAC & Japan, LinkedIn

  • Margaret Maile Petty, Executive Director, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, UTS

  • Murray Hurps, Director of Entrepreneurship, UTS

  • Annie Parker, Global Head Startups, Microsoft

  • Alex Lynch, Public Policy Manager, Google

  • Bridget Loudon, CEO & Co-founder, Expert360


Join us from 5.30pm for a 6pm start, drinks and canapes included.
