Simon Pringle is a busy man! Soon after winning Business Person of the Year, our co-founder will be speaking at the annual Gatwick Economic Growth Forum for the region, on 9th June 2016.

According to the website: “Nearly 200 leaders from the public and private sector come together for the annual forum to identify and discuss opportunities, debate threats and celebrate success in the £22.3 billion Gatwick Diamond economy.

The theme for 2016 will look specifically at the Gatwick Diamond Digital Economy – the single most important driver of innovation, competitiveness and growth. It holds huge potential for entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises and how regional businesses adopt digital technologies will be a key determinant of their future growth.”

This is a topic close to our heart and Simon is well versed in both creative and straight talking approaches as to how SMEs particularly, can make it work for them.

Simon will talk about the importance of investment in people and a solid supply chain, to maintain and stimulate growth and address the current skills gap in digital technology industries.

Attendees have the chance to not only hear from a range of specialists, but be part of interactive Q&A style debate.

If you are attending and have a #digitaleconomy question you’d like Simon to address, get in touch or tweet us @redriverUK
