Following their summer break, Creative Kitchen is set to return with a new series of events supporting the region’s digital and tech community.
The Autumn schedule gets underway with their Developer Breakfast on September 15th at 92 Degrees Coffee. Developers, creatives, designers and technically-minded entrepreneurs will come together for a morning of coffee and in-depth conversation covering all things code and digital development.
Following this the ever popular Made Here returns on October 6th to a new venue in the Cotton Exchange’s Old Hall with support of Bruntwood for an evening of talks supporting and championing women in digital and technology.
The line-up includes Amanda Follit (Amaze), Clare Rogerson (Liverpool John Lennon Airport) and Debbie Edwards (F-Disruptors) who will be talking about their careers and the challenges they have faced whilst building their careers in the world of digital and technology.
The evening will focus on positive encouragement to inspire more women to get involved in the sector.
Gavin Sherratt, curator of Creative Kitchen and managing director of digital agency Mashbo commented: “With the growth of Creative Kitchen we are focused on supporting issues that affect our sector, such as the skills and gender gap. Hopefully October’s Made Here event will help to encourage and inspire more role models such as Amanda, Clare and Debbie to champion what opportunities there are in the world of digital and tech. We’re an industry which is currently very male focused and we need work on creating some balance in our industry.”
Amanda Follit, Head of Digital Operations Services at Amaze, says she is looking forward to being part of the upcoming Made Here: “I’m really looking forward to speaking at Creative Kitchen’s Women in Tech event. We’re experiencing a gender gap in the world of digital and tech, which is highlighted by the lack of young women who are coming through to fill the roles. I hope that by sharing my story I can encourage some of these women and show them that a role in tech is completely achievable, regardless of gender.”
