How to stay purpose-led as you scale – Monday 10th October, 12pm | Bristol Tech Festival
As your technology business looks to grow, how can you ensure your values remain, and that your customers don’t suffer? For this year’s Bristol Tech Festival, Xledger will host a panel on day one all on the topic of how to stay purpose-led as you scale.
Why attend? “Technology conferences should be fun and engaging – and open to all, regardless of experience.” This year, Bristol Tech Festival will explore the industry through a series of fun social events, encouraging everyone to participate through interactive seminars, workshops and activity spread across the city.
Each day focusses on a different theme, from protection to play. On day one, this theme is Purpose. With a panel of expert speakers from the worlds of tech, agency and finance, Xledger will be hosting one of these sessions around the idea of maintaining purpose as you scale.
