Dave Coplin will deliver the keynote speech at this year’s Worcestershire LEP Annual Conference 2017

Dave Coplin has over 25 years of experience in providing strategic advice and guidance around the impact of technology on modern society and how organisations can achieve the full potential that technology has to offer. Dave regularly contributes to the national and international conversation around the future of the UK’s IT and digital industries, tackling topics from the future of education to Big Data and the impact of machine learning.

Dave’s views are informed by his highly impressive industry experience, including his previous role as the Principle Tech Evangelist for Microsoft Ltd and as an independent Non-Executive Director for Mitchells and Butlers plc.

#WLEP17 is the perfect opportunity for businesses and partners of all sectors and sizes to hear the latest priorities for the future, ensuring Worcestershire’s long-term prosperity for all of its community. Organisations will also be on hand to offer guidance on Worcestershire’s latest connected, creative and dynamic projects, with opportunities to meet the experts throughout the morning and during the networking lunch.

Over 450 delegates are expected to attend this year’s half-day conference from 8.30am to 1:30pm on Friday 1 December 2017 at the Chateau Impney, Droitwich. The Conference will be hosted by the BBC Midlands Today’s main presenter, Mary Rhodes, who will be joined by business representatives including Marcus Burton – Non-Executive Director at Yamazaki Mazak, Keith Robson – Chief Operating Officer at University of Surrey and all three previous winners of the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards.

Businesses are also invited to attend the ‘Healthy Business Breakfast’, sponsored by Bishop Fleming, which is taking place from 7:30-8:30am on the morning of the Conference. High profile business figures in health-related industries, including Richard Barnes – Inventor of the Body Volume Index, Peter Hunt – Product and Project Manager of Boardman Bikes and Liam McGreevy – Managing Director of Elite Healthcare Distribution, will discuss some of the county’s latest innovations in health.

Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to secure such a high-profile keynote speaker with industry-leading experience for our conference. Dave Coplin will be a huge attraction for local companies, by providing an invaluable insight into creativity and innovation in technology.

“We have already seen a large number of registrations for the Conference and with limited spaces available, I would urge all interested businesses to register their place at the earliest opportunity.”

Sponsors of the event currently include: Hewett Recruitment, Bishop Fleming, RCA Regeneration, Thursfields Solicitors and The Training Academy. A vibrant exhibition area will also host a range of local companies and organisations showcasing their products and services. A limited number of sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are available, with details on the website here.
