Technology careers and technologists have many a stereotype and misconception associated with them. Whilst society and the industry is trying to dispel some of the myths, here at Accelita we believe everyone has a part to play.

TECH US TOGETHER LAUNCH EVENT

We were privileged to attend the launch event of Tech Us Together, a social enterprise whose goal is to inspire, explore and connect through technology. Bringing people together who are interested in tech, are curious about careers in tech, and who are already in the tech sector; to network and explore opportunities.

The launch event, hosted at the LCB Depot in Leicester, saw our Director of IT and Cyber, Tom Noble along with 3 other guest speakers take to the stage to discuss their background in technology and to answer questions from the audience.

With a diverse and strong attendance, it was great to discuss some of the routes into a tech career and where it could take you. Kate Lowe, the founder of Tech Us Together and event organiser, said;

“Everyone left feeling inspired and new connections were formed.” – Kate Lowe, founder of Tech Us Together

As Tom took to the stage his talk focused on the personal gains that can be achieved with a career in technology and that technology careers are diverse and open to everyone; no matter your background, no matter your interest, no matter your skill set! In fact, Tom Noble, co-founder of the IT Consultancy firm Accelita, used his career in technology to take to the skies by acquiring his Personal Pilots Licence (PPL).
