Bridging the Skills Gap

23 May 2017

The global growth of fintech offers great economic opportunities to Glasgow and Scotland. To fully realise this potential, some key challenges need to be addressed.

None more so than securing a pipeline of well-trained technical talent.

This free breakfast event will;

  • articulate this challenge
  • provide an overview of imaginative,  innovative responses already underway
  • stimulate discussion on how to respond best to this challenge going forward
  • offer great opportunities to meet some of the key players in our fast growing fintech sector and meet young professionals who have recently started their careers through a non-traditional route

This highly topical event is organised by FDM Group and hosted at its state of the art Technical Academy, with support from Glasgow's IFSD.

Speakers include Colin Halpin, Regional Head of Scotland, Global Data Services, HSBC and Fiona Ramsay, Head of PBTV & API Platforms, Barclays Wealth.
