About this event

Join Microsoft and The Met Office for an in-person event that will see leaders and experts come together to provide discussion opportunities that will help your organisation build digital skills, access and retain diverse talent, and prepare for a more environmentally sustainable future.

With the South West’s diverse economic activity and natural resources, the region is uniquely placed to be the UK’s leader in green and blue economic sectors. Together with The Met Office and local leaders, this event aims to guide, inspire, provide opportunities to learn together and tackle the topics that are important to business leaders today.

  • Join workshops to build digital capabilities and explore the steps your organisation can take to build a more environmentally sustainable future.
  • Unpack the role data skills play in creating local opportunity today and tomorrow in the hybrid world of work.
