This is the first in our series of regular events to discuss one of the most important drivers of any business - growth. Whether it’s a tiny startup or a tech behemoth, the ability to supercharge your company’s growth is vital for success.
We’re excited to be kicking off our first Growth Talks event with some of the sharpest minds in the industry, who’ll be sharing their insights and learnings on scalable and sustainable growth strategies.
This is an invaluable evening for anyone serious about growth, and an opportunity to learn from the best whilst sharing ideas over good food and drinks.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to Nodegirls, an organisation that supports women who want to learn to code.
