Join us to hear how technology is bridging the physical gap between our teams and reinventing how we protect the well-being of our most valuable assets - our people!

About this event

Join us for the next exciting Birmingham Slack Community event. We're delighted to be joined by two inspirational founders who are both huge advocates for how technology improves the experiences of our most valuable assets - our people! 

Ben Williams is Co-Founder of Loopin, an innovative people engagement platform, and also the author of Commando Mindset and a former Royal Marine. His journey into the world of tech has been truly inspirational and he'll be sharing more about this and his partnership with Slack in the session.  

Also joining us is the equally inspirational Yiannis Maos, Founder and CEO of Birmingham Tech, a not-for-profit organisation created to help connect and elevate the tech community in the West Midlands. He’s also a Board Advisor for Tech Nation and a powerhouse of influence in the tech scene, so he'll be sharing his insights on the importance of technology in facilitating the right employee engagement.
