Join us for an evening of networking and celebration at the Sky Loft in London to find out more about the ways CompTIA can work with your organisation to ensure IT professionals have the skills they need to be competitive in their job.
Meeting Date & Time:
Thursday, 14 March 2019
18:30 – 23:00
28th Floor, Millbank Tower
18:30 – 19:30 – Welcome Drinks and Canapes
19:30 – 20:15 – The Tech Sector Skills Gap
Graeme Vermeulen will join us to tell us about his phenomenal journey which has taken him from the role of an Analyst to Engineer to Consultant and finally to his current role as an Architect.
During this introduction Graeme will look into why a career in IT is as lucrative as ever, and why the number of open IT roles are on the rise as employers struggle to find candidates with the skills they need.
20:15 – 21:00 – CompTIA A+ is still as on topic as ever
Zeshan Sattar will compare the A+ 900 series and Core 1000 Series and the reasons why there is a now greater impact on topic areas such as IT Security and Cloud Computing. The A+ certifications are seen to be an important stepping stone to Cyber careers as well as a key contributor to many Apprenticeship programmes.
21:00 – 22:30 – Networking with Food and Drinks
