Our flagship UK-focused campaign, the Advance Series, brings together leaders across industries to discuss opportunities for innovation against a backdrop of disruption for UK business. 

Together with our supporting partners, the CBI, the ScaleUp Institute, and our media partner The Telegraph, we are providing a platform for the leaders of the UK's most inspiring digital companies to debate key issues including: 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? 

As a leading technology firm working with clients whose industries are being changed by technology and the digital world, we see what digital innovation really means both in business and real-life terms. That's why we are opening our doors to 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.

On 5 March, we hosted our launch event "Nurturing innovation in the UK" with leaders from Ocado, what3words and Starling Bank speaking alongside our partners the CBI and ScaleUp Institute. Click here to read about the key themes and issues they discussed.
