Phew – that was a busy week and there were 300 people who turned up for the Desklodge house launch party so big thanks to all who came and partied with us.
Thankfully this week we are mostly back to Normal .. except that we are now onto the next big thing .. our Tech Careers Fair!! Yes, we know that Bristol is lacking in this area so have put our heads together with HBB and Desklodge and decided to throw one in March (sorry, we are still in party mode!). We want it to be inclusive and open to everyone who has a slight interest in getting into the industry, with workshops, trainers and forward thinking companies who are open to speaking to everyone and all capabilities. The Website is live and we are currently speaking to our possible sponsors and our current WTHub members have a stand with their membership as they are already known to be great! Check it out here Tech³Shed
