BJSS invites all leaders to join us in an exploration of the unique world of tech leadership.
From startup to enterprise, whether you’re a Tech/Test lead, Delivery/Engineering Manager or have a passion for tech leadership – come and join us as we share our experiences.
It’s not all business though, with gin tasting and canapés to sparck the conversation. A relaxed environment where you can meet like-minded individuals and gain insight into solutions that businesses require today.
