Tech Networking Success

28 Feb 2024
News

Over 50 professionals, including parents and alumni, and pupils gathered in TrustID's Reading office for our first Bradfield Society Tech community networking event this week. The aim of the event was manifold; From alumni and parents sharing their experience and advice with current pupils, to younger alumni seeking advice from those more advanced in their careers, whilst at the same time being able to advise pupils on university options and first jobs.as well as business networking between the attendees.

Pupils were invited to the venue in advance of the main networking event so that they could learn about what it was like to work in a tech business. They received a brief from TrustID's Tech team, the CTO, a Software Development Manager and a Product Owner on the software development side of the business as well as receiving training on document analysis, and give the challenge to 'spot a fake passport'.

Trust ID's CEO and former parent Tony Machin and COO Matt Green-Armytage (E91-96) then gave the entire networking group an insight into their business, highlighting the challenges and opportunities of working in Tech for the benefit of the pupils.

It was a great evening, giving the attendees many different touch points on which to interact and lots of new connections were made.

Many thanks to TrustID for allowing us to host the event in their offices in Reading, they were fantastic hosts. We look forward to hosting more events using the same model in the future.
