For this months Network Leaders event we will be joined by guest speaker - Edward Twiddy, Director of Innovation at Atom Bank, he will discuss the story behind launching a revolutionary digital bank. Atom Bank was the UK's first bank built exclusively for mobile, and since their launch in early 2016 they have continued to highlight why the North East is valuable to the fintech sector.
In addition to our main speaker, we are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with South Tyneside College, the North East Automotive Alliance and Design Network North to provide an update on the upcoming Apprenticeship Levy. The North East Professional Exchange will talk about the effects of the levy on SMEs of all sizes and South Tyneside college will discuss how they can support organisations with their obligations and explore ways of making their training pots go further.
