Digital & Creative Sector Skills Meetup

15 June 2022 @ 11:45 am - 3:15 pm

This event is for all of you Creative, Animation, Marketing and Digital businesses that make up the collective community of the Tees Valley’s Creative & Digital sector. This is your opportunity to meet your business neighbours and help shape the future of your industry.

Join Tees Valley Business’s Skills for Growth team, Teesside University and DigitalCity for this FREE meetup and be part of a collective conversation that packs some punch as we discuss developing our talent, the impact of skills challenges and business growth beyond Covid-19.

Why Join?

You’ll hear from leading industry voices from the likes of Adobe, Better Brand Agency, and The Juice Academy on how they are tackling skills gaps and preparing for the future.

Network with likeminded people who share the same passion and creativity as you and who understand your industry.

Hear from the Skills for Growth team and get expert insights and latest information on the Digital and Creative skills gaps in the Tees Valley, now and in the future, so that you can plan ahead.

You’ll also discover how to tap into the funding and consultancy support available locally to help you get the right people, skills, and tools in place to help your business grow.

Plus, have the opportunity to add your voice to the conversation and share your experiences on how skills shortages are affecting productivity or preventing growth in your business and help us shape future skills provision in the Tees Valley that works for you.

As events return to a new normal, enjoy face to face networking over light refreshment and lunch.
