Event description

Description

Sponsored by Reclaim Tax UK, University Centre Shrewsbury is back to host the Tech Severn business breakfast - this year with a focus on health related technologies and innovation from Shropshire based organisations.

This will be your chance to network with business leaders, local politicians and innovators; discover potential business opportunities, and make vital connections you might not ordinarily have made, all over breakfast.

The agenda for the Tech Severn Business Breakfast:

0745 – Informal breakfast and networking (Sponsored by Reclaim Tax UK)

0800 – Welcome – University Centre Shrewsbury – Paul Kirkbright – Deputy Provost

0810 - Breakfast Sponsor - Chris Jones - Reclaim Tax UK

0815 - Health Related Innovation - Professor John Buckley - University Centre Shrewsbury

Whilst Professor John Buckley is well known internationally for his academic research in cardiovascular and metabolic health, he is also a successful entrepreneur, founding local business Lifestyle Exercise & Fitness in Shrewsbury. Professor Buckley will present some health tech he currently has in development, and the opportunities for health tech innovation in Shropshire.

0830- Strength Through Adversity - Darren Edwards

“Darren will be talking about his inspirational journey and the charity he has set up called “Strength Through Adversity”. He will also be demonstrating his exoskeleton suit and talking about both this digital health technology and how it has made a difference to his life.

Whilst rock climbing in Wales, Darren was involved in a serious fall and broke his back. The injury he sustained left him instantly paralysed from the chest down. With an amazing attitude, his journey shows that determination and perseverance can lead to triumph over hardship. Darren has now been selected for Britain’s Paracanoe Programme. An inspirational person and story…”
