Timings: 18:00 - 20:00

Anaplan connects people, plans and data in every area of their customer's business and, for one night only on Thursday the 21st of February, they will be connecting us with some of the brightest minds in tech for an evening of personal development. You'll hear from our stellar guest speakers who will share their own personal experiences in our 'secrets to success sessions' and provide top tips on how to build a successful career in the technology space. The goal of this event is to give you the data to model your own development path and be better prepared for obstacles you might encounter along the way. 

Anaplan have built an award winning business (Deloitte Technology Fast 500, Forbes Cloud 100, Gartner MQ leader in Cloud Financial Planning and Analysis) off the back of diverse teams and inclusive thinking. So naturally as hosts for the session they will also be sharing some of the key initiatives they've put in place to on-board a more diverse range of talent.

Regardless of whether you are building a career in the commercial, technical or people side of the technology sector this event will add value. 

Over the course of the evening we'll delve into the following topics:

  • Career planning and accelerating the achievement of goals
  • Developing your personal brand
  • Building a career in a male dominated industry
  • Diversity and inclusion best practices 
  • And much more...

At Stott and May we are focused on delivering the best experiences for our candidates and clients. That means going the extra mile when it comes to diversity and inclusion. As a result we are delighted to be supported by MyClearText who will be providing live speech-to-text subtitling at this event for the hearing impaired. Find out more about MyClearText here.
