“Through my work on multi-media projects in health, education and publishing and as chair of the TLA CreativeTech and HealthTech groups, one benefit has been bringing together diverse people and opportunities across multiple business sectors, which has led to some very interesting business connections.”

Kay Hutchison, Founder, Belle Media Ltd

“I’m very proud to support TLA Women In Tech and from experience, know there are real, tangible benefits that tech companies gain by ensuring that there is a proper balance of women and men at all levels within the company. Our companies perform demonstrably better when we get the balance right - we get broader perspectives and debates, make smarter decisions generate better business outcomes. TLA Women in Tech are doing a great job getting this message out as well as hosting superb networking events that help companies like ours meet some of the best and brightest women out there.”

Vicky Brock "Innovation, creativity and problem solving doesn't happen in isolation. You have to create moments of serendipity and you have create the environments and contexts for diversity of thinking to occur. If we all thought like me, or as one, we would never be the innovative, problem-solving company that we are - diversity and balance are the key. I'm involved in TLA because it creates that network where different mindsets can come together, and it actively ensures diversity in all senses is high on the tech and entrepreneurial agenda."

 Vicky Brock, CEO, Clear Returns

"I am proud to support the inspiring work of the WOMEN IN TECH community. Here's to women everywhere as brave and as bold to build something from nothing!

Men and women problem solve in different ways. In terms of security, attacking a vector at all angles is the surest way to success. To acheive this we need both male and female analysis. Having texture to our work relationships is a good thing.

Jennifer Arcuri, Tech Entrepreneur

Founder/Analytical Storyteller of Miribure Ltd "The primary attraction to the TLA WiT group for me is that it is a WORKING group of professional woman (and men) who are geared towards making actionable changes to gender balance in business.

The benefits for me; the ability to partner with highly impassioned, inspirational and diverse women; ability to share knowledge and experiences; and hear their thoughts and celebrate achievements; all geared towards paying it forward...championing gender balance for future generations of women in the workplace"

Founder/Analytical Storyteller of Miribure Ltd

Paulina Sygulska Tenner

"As an established business founder I'd like to make sure a proportion of my time goes towards supporting early stage entrepreneurs in tech - women in particular - and the network provides me with a great way to do that. Also, it's inspiring to see many talented women support one another for the greater good."
