Institute of Technology Tribe Event

Speech delivered at the Institute of Technology Tribe Event on 18/06/18

Thank you for the opportunity to speak today.

This has been an important event, that hasn’t just celebrated the hard work, the creativity and the ambition of all those involved in the Institute of Technology (IoT) Tribe accelerator. But has also explored the role digital industry will play in our economy.

Well done – and thank you.
