Representatives from across the Welsh tech sector met with the UK Government’s Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries, Margot James, and Wales Office Minister Stuart Andrew recently to discuss the growing industry.
The roundtable event took place on the last day of Wales Week in London which celebrated the successes of Wales’ thriving tech sector.
Among the attendees was Victoria Norman, Chief Executive of Caerphilly-based Signum Health, which provides a range of remote cloud-based diagnostic platforms.
Ministers learned about emerging trends and priorities in the region and heard about the wider economic and societal impacts that might result from new innovations.
Ms Norman said: “I was delighted and honoured to be asked to attend this event, signifying the importance of the Welsh technology sector to the UK economy.
“It’s especially significant that the event was being held on International Women’s Day which enables us to also celebrate the increasing important role of women in the technology sector.
“Being the female CEO of a health technology company can be a lonely place, so we must do all we can to encourage more women and girls to learn about technology and join the digital work arena.”
