Stimulating the Next Generation of Digital Creatives

28 July @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, BBC MediaCity

Our young “digital natives” are not as savvy as we think said Digital Leaders Chair Rachel Neaman. She based this comment on a 2013 O2 report stating that only 20% of the digital creatives jobs required by 2017 could be filled by the current generation of 16-25 year olds. If four-fifths of our digital creatives jobs are not suitable for our up-and-coming digital generation, the skills gap won’t close any time soon.

Join us at the BBC’s Media City to debate the issues and actions and to hear from local initiatives to create the links needed to foster the North West’s next generation together with our lead discussants including Anna Wilson, Head of Digital, Tangerine.
