Can UK businesses successfully scale-up against a backdrop of widescale disruption? What needs to change in the UK if homegrown talent is to compete on a level with global tech giants?

Join Bird & Bird, in association with The Telegraph, the UK's premier business organisation CBI and the ScaleUp Institute on 5 March for the first event in our Advance Series, in which leaders across industries discuss the impacts of technological innovation on UK business.

Hear from some of the UK’s most successful scale-ups, influencers and experts guiding businesses through change for their views on how the UK can become a world-class centre for innovation. The debate will continue over networking drinks.
