TaTC: Myths, Legends and Unicorns

Oct 19, 2021 · Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Hello you beautiful pandas!!!!

We are back!!! This is our first in person event since the dreaded L, and we cannot WAIT to see all of your lovely smiling faces. We've deliberately picked talks that are high impact, only 20 mins long, with plenty of time for breaks and socialising and networking!!

Super grateful to our joint sponsors, Moneysupermarket.com and Venturi!

We'll be enjoying an inclusive range of food and drinks at the wonderful MSM offices and courtesy of them, and then the very kind folks at tech recruitment powerhouse Venturi are treating us all to a drink afterwards! (if you prefer a milkshake to an alcoholic beverage, that is completely cool with us. Just ask John G, the absolute Oreo fiend)
