Digital transformation and the technology executive

The second feature in our Women in Tech series with Greater Manchester Business Week focuses on businesses who have undergone or are on a journey of digital transformation and the women who are leading their charge. 

Laudale, Managing Director Alec Laurie shares his view on digital transformation and it’s impact on the technology executive.

Gender equality is a business issue, not a women’s issue.

As part of International Women’s Day and our ongoing commitment to promoting ‘Women In Tech’  Laudale has partnered with Greater Manchester Business Week to produce a list of 30 women contributing to and representing the tech sector in Greater Manchester.

How Transport for the North can significantly impact the talent landscape

This week saw Transport for the North propose a new train line that would connect Bradford to Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and beyond.  The Northern Powerhouse Rail line is a positive development for the North but it’s not set for completion until 2030 – what does this mean for attracting talent to the North in the meantime?

A case of the Blues – why there’s a recruitment lesson to be learnt from Everton’s woes

The Power of The North

London is indisputably a global commercial hub. But with this benefit to employers and career-builders come the drawbacks of stressful commutes, with insufficient allowances, and an exorbitant cost of living. So it comes as no real surprise that ambitious careerists are looking at working in other areas of the country to have a better quality… Read more »

Men, take 1 small action on International Women’s Day

“The fastest way to change society is to mobilise the women of the world” (Charles Malik) I like Malik’s quote; it’s simple and common sense.  That is, immobilising 50% of the population is not common sense. From a business perspective another one-liner caught my attention recently:
