A dynamic series of debates and lectures

CW Talks

This series of talks and debates offers an opportunity for members of CW, and their invited guests, to discuss significant technology, market & societal issues with business decision makers and leading members of the academic community.

These events allow Founder members to get away from daily pressures, reflect on key issues, gain insight and, as always, network with fellow members of the CW community.

As with all CW activity, the aim is to critically examine and discuss underlying business and technology issues. CW provides the neutral and impartial platform for discussion and debate.

CW Talks are free to attend for CW members and are £25 +VAT for non-members.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for this programme. Contact sponsorship@cambridgewireless.co.uk for more details.
