Back in March, we launched our Virtual Coffee Mornings series to keep conversations running throughout the South West digital and tech community over lockdown. Experienced leaders and founders from Bristol, Bath and beyond came together online to discuss the future of tech, as well as to offer advice for business development and resilience during a crisis. In case you missed the live events, we’ll be sharing stories and insights from our wonderful guest speakers over the course of the next few weeks.

Join us at the TechSPARK virtual coffee morning where each week we speak to entrepreneurs & experts about their journey! This week we were joined by some of the senior team at Bristol’s original Unicorn Hargreaves Lansdown! Headquartered in Bristol they’re the UK’s number 1 investment platform for private investors and now employ over 1,700 people. They look after more than £86 billion for over 1.2 million clients. HL is also one of our largest tech employers with over 400 people across their tech teams. We’ll be discussing what the future of work & tech look like post-COVID-19 and how HL have adapted.
We spoke to: – Jonathon Kidd- Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) –
Jason Hill- Temp Chief Information Officer (CIO) –
Matt Bonetti- Head of Development
