The growth of High Tech companies is being stifled by the lack of appropriately qualified technical talent - and market forces and culture are not adjusting to resolve the problem fast enough.

The panel facilitated by Radiolive Host Andrew Patterson including Kirsti Grant (HR Manager Vend), Tom McLeod (ATEED), Tanya Gray (Gather workshops in schools), and a High School student who has recently returned from a trip to Silicon Valley
will discuss some of the associated issues such as the lack of role models in the technology industry, the low number of youth choosing technology as a career path, the image of “geeks in front of computers in the basement” and the disconnect between skills learned at tertiary level and what is needed in the business world.

Do not miss this lively debate!

Venue: Gate 1, Massey University, Sir Neil Waters Building
