HAVE YOUR SAY…at this virtual question time event as key players from within the digital community come together in one virtual space

About this Event

Join us at this unique Q&A based session where key Lancashire organisations and their decision makers come together in one virtual space to answer and discuss questions and issues from you – Lancashire’s digital & tech community!

This event is designed to encourage collaboration across the county between key partners and explore ways in which we can all work better together by avoiding duplication, repetition and present a less fragmented landscape across the county, as well as providing a platform for you to have your say!

Find out who is who, what we all do, our purpose and priorities and how we can support you and all work better together.
