womenintechnology.co.uk and the British Computer Society would like to invite you to W-Tech 2009, a one day recruitment, career development and networking event for female technologists including students, postgraduates, experienced professionals and returners
to work. The event is taking place on Tuesday 3rd February in central London at Savoy Place, near the Embankment.
The event is free to attend and there will be a recruitment fair running during the day alongside a packed programme of career development and technology talks, workshops and seminars covering topics such as managing your online profile, increasing your confidence
and improving your influencing skills. Attendees will have the chance to attend up to six of these free career development sessions running between 12pm and 5.45pm. More information on the sessions available can be found here:
In the evening there will be a networking event (similar in style to the womenintechnology networking events we run) that's going to be a 'must attend' networking opportunity for everyone interested in and involved with 'Women in IT'.
The evening part of the event will start with a reception at 6pm. The theme for the formal part of the evening will be 'achieving in the technology profession' and we are bringing together a panel of successful women working in IT who will share their own career
experiences and take questions from the audience. Confirmed speakers so far are Lis Astall, MD Public Service in Europe, Africa & Latin America at Accenture, Punita Gajree, Head of Programme Solutions for London 2012 and Kavita Oberoi - Managing Director,
Oberoi Consulting (Kavita appeared on Channel 4's hit show The Secret Millionaire in August 2008).
People can attend during the day, for the evening networking or for both parts of the event - everyone is welcome but they need to register. Places on the free career development workshops can be reserved during the event sign up process so sign up soon to
make sure you can attend the sessions you're most interested in! You can register by clicking here:
Please put the date in your diary, pass this invite onto other women (and men) who you think would be interested in attending W-Tech 2009 and we'll look forward to seeing you there on the 3rd February.
If you have any questions at all or if you are an employer who might be interested in being involved with the event, please don't hesitate to contact me.
