Beckie is a great speaker – she spoke about “Flexible Working” and related this to her personal life/experiences which I think always resonates well with the audience I chose Beckie as she has a wealth of amazing experience in the WIT and Diversity space as well as having built a great community with her events and also Tech Returners – so she is able to offer great advice and knowledge \n\nYou MUST meet Beckie! If you are looking for tech talent, building diverse teams and a wealth of experience – she is a must to know!
