The Essential Human Skills in Tech

Every industry is facing urgent and potentially transformational levels of disruption, and this is especially true for those working in tech. Developments are coming so thick and fast that the tech skills gap is growing exponentially: innovations are moving faster than our ability to fully embrace and adopt them.

The challenge for those in tech is massive; but the good news is that it’s eclipsed by the sheer scale of the opportunity. Organisations can get ready to face this challenging landscape, by turning it into an opportunity to invest heavily in the most important resource they have – people.

Join our discussion as we consider some of rhe most essential human skills and hear from our pannelists on their thoughts on why they are so relavant.
