WiTT 20th Anniversary Talks: An Evening with Anne Heal

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of Women in Telecoms & Technology. To celebrate this significant milestone, we are hosting a monthly series of online “fireside chats” with speakers from the earliest days of WiTT.

These events are for WiTT members only, but if there’s space we will allow a few guests. If you’re interested in attending please email info@wittgroup.org

Each Zoom call will begin at 6:00pm and end at approximately 7:15. These 20th Anniversary chats are meant to be fun and inspiring. Please join us with a glass of wine, or other preferred beverage, on the night.

We are very pleased that Anne Heal, chair of Thames Water Customer Challenge Group; board director for several businesses and charities; former Director of Regulatory Affairs for BT Group; and past board member of WiTT, will join us on August 5th.

Anne first spoke at a WiTT event in February 2005. Please join us to hear about her career journey and views on how the tech sector has changed in the past 20 years.
