On Friday, following the PM's press briefing, CW made the decision to postpone, cancel or convert to webinar the majority of events until Monday 8 June at the earliest (the government's stick in the sand for "turning the tide"). In lieu of this decision, I wanted to keep you up to date with all the other support options that CW can offer you and your business over the coming months.
Our first two webinars will be the two soft skills training sessions in collaboration with Adelina Chalmers and Sam Dods that had originally been planned as face-to-face activities for the Spring. We've slashed the price by 80% and would encourage folk interested to register. Each still includes a 1:1 phone call with the coach to receive personalised support.
- 15 April: How to get your manager to say "yes"
- 22 April: "I worry they'll mess it up" - What would it take to feel confident in your senior teams' decisions?
New, autumn dates for face-to-face events
We have secured dates for the following events that have had to be postponed from the Spring. You can continue to register online via the links below:
- 23 July: Mixed reality content: virtually a done deal?
- 17 September: CW Workshop - Motion MEMS & environmental sensors for industrial applications
- 29 September: Talk to the eye in the sky
- 9 November: AI & robotics in neurocritical care and neurosurgery
Share your upcoming news, blogs and online events with the CW community
Over the coming weeks, the CW marketing team will be in touch to encourage you to share what your company is up to with our network! In the absence of events, we are here to help boost your marketing and business development through other means! We can deliver your important messages to our community through our website, emails, social channels and partner networks. Keep your eyes open for their communications - or drop Eleanor a line today!
Recruit your next hire via CW
For many of you, hiring never stops. If your company has roles that it is currently looking to fill, you can promote them to an engaged community of technologists via CW! We have our Jobsboard, we distribute a regular email Jobsletter and we flag open roles on our social channels. If you're looking for someone particularly special, drop Pat a line and we can plan more bespoke recruitment support for you and your teams. Again, the CW marketing team will be in touch to coordinate with you and your colleagues.
Prepare for the digitisation of your business
CW has been working with the R&D teams of several members to deliver bespoke programmes that accelerate the delivery of new concept products and processes. If your business is looking to adopt new technologies such as IoT and 5G quickly but needs support, drop Abhi a line to see what support CW could deliver.
Help beat COVID-19
Through our CCO's side-role as Ambassador for the United Nations Global Sustainability Index Institute, CW is bringing together a group of technologists, scientists, engineers and professionals who are helping manage and beat the impact of COVID-19. If you feel you can contribute to this conversation, please contact Abhi Naha.
There is plenty of support for teams innovating in this area and we'll flag initiatives from our members as we become aware of them. Amazon Web Services, for example, has established a diagnostic development initiative to encourage the development of rapid and accurate patient testing and the mitigation of future outbreaks.
Support for freelancers
For any freelancers who may be impacted financially over the coming months, CW can reach out to fellow members in a coordinated manner in an attempt to find you short term paid projects. It may be a challenge to secure these and do not want to raise false expectations but will do our best to make the appropriate connections as best and respectfully as we can. To find out more, contact Abhi Naha.
If anyone of you is feeling pressure or worry over the current events, please remember that CW is here to listen and offer a supporting hand in any way we can.
