Together we will explore ways to address the main challenges faced when working with technology in education. We will be running a breakfast every quarter of this year to give you the opportunity to tackle challenges and explore trends in your industry alongside members in education space.

What are Special Interest Groups?
Unlike our classic, cross-sector roundtables, the Special Interest Groups have been designed to bring you together with members in the same space, with potentially similar clients, to discuss challenges or innovations that are really relevant. The idea is that you can share needs and leads, and learn from each other, with an already strong understanding of the landscape. A member of the team will also be on hand to follow up with relevant connections & insights.
What if I can’t make this date?
Each Special Interest Group will meet once a quarter. If you would like to know more, but can’t make this date, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that our venues are subject to change; always refer to email reminders one week before the event and the text message reminder on the day of the event for the correct venue. Our website will also be updated in the event of a venue change.
