Help from The Hive Enterprise Centre (the venue) with business issues
We are still looking for people to give 25 min/ 10 min lightning talks, run / help with workshops, show their projects, sponsor and help the event go smoothly. Please book your ticket below and answer the questions if you can help.
Events are organised by a small number of volunteers in their spare time, so the more support offered, the better the event will be and the more regularly we can run events.
