  • Bring your brain and get involved!

    This month we're hosting a basic skills workshop. We've got a few exercises lined up to sharpen your analytical and creative testing abilities.

    All are welcome. Whether you're a complete beginner looking to learn some new skills, or a testing expert who thinks they know it all. 😉

    Due to the serious lack of physical post-it notes right now (I never thought I'd miss them so much!) you'll need a device capable of editing boards on miro.com. It works in most popular web browsers and they have apps for iOS and Android. If you could create an account in advance that will speed things up a bit on the night. 👍

    The rough running order for the evening will be:

    6:30 - Virtual Doors open
    7:00 - Fun & games begin
    8:30 (or whenever we run out of steam) - Back downstairs to see what's on telly.

    As always, if you'd like to sponsor, host or speak at a future event then please do get in touch! And don't forget to keep an eye on the Meetup page or on...

    🤝 SEO Professionals: How to cultivate a great relationship with your developers!

    The most challenging part of SEO can often be convincing developers to implement your suggestions.

    In these challenging times, we are seeing the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people and have witnessed anti-racism protests around the globe.

    As business leaders we have a responsibility to make Diversity & Inclusion business as usual, raising our consciousness of issues that affect our people, customers and communities, becoming less hesitant and more confident on issues that embrace agenda’s around Race, Disability, Age, LGBTQ & Gender.

    This is not just the right thing for businesses to do, it's the smart thing – research shows that businesses that promote a diverse and inclusive workplace are more productive and more profitable.

  • We're looking forward to welcoming you to the first CoTech Meetup for a while!

    Prior to 2020 we were already witnessing growing levels of inequality and precarious work. Now, with the effects of the global coronavirus pandemic colliding with the UK's exit from the EU, we seem to be entering a period of massive economic and social change. This may well lead to spiralling levels of unemployment. But then again, there is also an opportunity for people to experiment with new ways of organising, and for us to question our old assumptions about the economy and social hierarchies more generally.

    What role is there for coops in this new era? How can they grow to create a more equitable future for workers and society in general?

    Join us for an informal evening, with short presentations for 4 great speakers, and an opportunity for discussion. The speakers will be:

    Rose Marley has recently started as CEO at Co-Ops UK. Rose has been a social entrepreneur for over 20 years and founded SharpFutu...
