Tech Startup to Scale Up and Beyond
Join us for an hour long workshop delivered by our Co-Founders Darren Auld (CEO) & Phil Telfer (CTO) to discuss the opportunities and pitfalls that you will face as a startup. Darrena and Phil will discuss ways in which you can make the most out of each problem or opportunity you may face not only during your start up phase but also into the scaleup and beyond stages too.
At ClearSky Logic we help build businesses of the future. This involves helping companies spin out new products, services, automation and features to help unlock growth in their company. Over the course of the years of providing services and in our careers we have frequently run into similar issues and opportunities in various companies depending on their phase of growth. We want to share our learnings with the business community to help more businesses get tech right and not let it be the reason that your business fails to achieve its full potential.

Flexible working, remote working, and employee wellbeing: the positive legacy of Covid-19?
Reimagining the office and work life after the pandemic- we bet whatever the shape & size of your business or place of study you’ve heard a lot of debate about this since lockdown eased. Some argue that Covid-19 has killed the traditional workplace, that suits & ties are over, and being remote can ease hiring barriers leading to a truly global workforce. Others – publicly some city investment banks and tech giants- have rejected calls for more flexibility with one CEO calling working from home an "aberration". Most of us probably welcome a hybrid approach but even in that scenario, considerations needs to be made by employers & employees alike.
In this panel session, you’ll hear from the founder of an employee wellbeing app, a founder whose team have now gone fully remote, and two senior business leaders from both the legal and global mobility world who will debate this subject, invite your input and reimagine the office of the future.
