We’re really looking forward to heading to Manchester next week for the second time. We’re running a special Ada Lovelace Day event with Magnetic North and the BBC.

The speaking line up is looking fabulous, and new names still being added.

Our host and compere for the night is the fabulous Elizabeth Clark, founder and CEO of Dream Agility. Elizabeth was recently awarded the start-up founder of the year award at the FDM Everywoman in Technology Awards. We’re really pleased to have her on board for the event.
