06 June 2017 | Employers

Plymouth’s position within the digital industry will be open for discussion at the latest Talking Business @ PL1.

Run in partnership with the Herald ‘The Digital Revolution: Is Plymouth’s Bark Bigger than its Byte?’, will look at why businesses need to maintain a digital presence, the risk of cyber-crime and the infrastructure required to support businesses now and in the future. With talks from guest speakers Michael Dieroff, Managing Director at Bluescreen IT, Julie Hawker, Joint Chief Executive at Cosmic UK and Merika Kindlon, Commercial Executive at Plymouth Science Park, the evening promises interesting debate and good food.

“With developments in place to make our City a digital hub, Plymouth’s cyber footprint is up for discussion,” said Pauline Hands, Director of Marketing, Corporate Relations and Enterprise at the College. “Talking Business will provide local employers with the platform to discuss the digital facilities and networks that already exist within the City, whether Plymouth is digitally ready and what challenges may arise within the business community.

“Our dining events are an invaluable opportunity for networking and we always have an interesting mix of businesses represented. If you haven’t been before, please do come and join us.”
