David Barker co-founded one of the first internet companies in the UK in 1994 and spent ten years globalising the Internet with Intel, Microsoft and Cisco.

However, when he was 15 years old, he was told he would never get into technology because of his poor background and should lower his aspirations.

David will share in his talk how he managed to overcome these obstacles he faced at 15 years old to enter the tech industry with a career that has lasted 30 years and seen him create three technology companies – his latest helping charities use technology for good.

David also recently stood in local and national elections as a councillor and Alderman in the City of London and as an MP in Tower Hamlets.

With the future of work changing, with employers now receiving hundreds of applications for every job opportunity, David will be passing on a wealth of advice to ensure you stand out and successfully move from education into work.

2 JULY 2020

Liz’s career teacher told her she should be a librarian. Sadly, she never made it. Instead, Liz is an award-winning marketer with 20 years’ experience at global media companies.

She is now an editor and partner at Tortoise where she runs the ThinkIn programme. She’s also the ‘voice of Tortoise’ in all Tortoise’s member communications. She was Chief Marketing Officer for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (known as the ‘Oscars’ of the advertising industry) and spent three crazy years being sued by C-list celebrities as publisher of heat magazine. She’s also worked for The Times, The Telegraph and ELLE.

Join us as she shares a bit about how she’s managed to blag it for this long, despite failing to get into University twice and repeatedly rebounding off the glass ceiling. 

By registering for the event, the student automatically receives complimentary membership to Tortoise (worth £100)! 

Please note: 

  • Attendance and Tortoise membership is for students aged 16+. 
  • The ThinkIn will take place on Zoom. There will be 5 members of Tortoise staff moderating the event. 
  • Students’ cameras will be on, but the students can turn them off. Students cannot unmute themselves. Staff can mute and remove attendees off the live event should they cause disruption.

2 JULY 2020
10:00 am BST

Liz’s career teacher told her she should be a librarian. Sadly, she never made it. Instead, Liz is an award-winning marketer with 20 years’ experience at global media companies.

She is now an editor and partner at Tortoise where she runs the ThinkIn programme. She’s also the ‘voice of Tortoise’ in all Tortoise’s member communications. She was Chief Marketing Officer for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity (known as the ‘Oscars’ of the advertising industry) and spent three crazy years being sued by C-list celebrities as publisher of heat magazine. She’s also worked for The Times, The Telegraph and ELLE.

Join us as she shares a bit about how she’s managed to blag it for this long, despite failing to get into University twice and repeatedly rebounding off the glass ceiling. 

By registering for the event, the student automatically receives complimentary membership to Tortoise (worth £100)! 

Please note: 

  • Attendance and Tortoise membership is for students aged 16+. 
  • The ThinkIn will take place on Zoom. There will be 5 members of Tortoise staff moderating the event. 
  • Students’ cameras will be on, but the students can turn them off. Students cannot unmute themselves. Staff can mute and remove attendees off the live event should they cause disruption.
