Destination Digitalbanner-destinationdigital


Last week, my partner and I had the opportunity to attend #Destination Digital

This FREE event was for people in business, and health in Wigan Borough, where leading experts explained what means and how it can benefit organisations.

Facilitated by Neil Perkin, the event had an outstanding line up of speakers, including inspirational leaders and stories from:

  • Uber
  • Manchester Growth Company
  • Business Growth Hub

There was a packed schedule of presentations, exhibitions and workshops with:

  • Keynote speakers taking about their own digital journey and why we need to become Digital Wigan
  • Interactive workshops with leaders in education, health and the public sector
  • Networking opportunities with those who can collaborate, help or influence
  • Practical advice for your business, profession or community.

This was a fantastic event. I found it hugely inspiring to see such forward thinking in the Borough of Wigan, pushed forward by Councillor Terry Halliwell and Councillor Molyneux  Deputy Leader.

The future definitely looks brighter for Wigan; an area once famous for its Dark Satanic Mills and Uncle Joes Mint Balls could in the very near future be a hub of the next “Google”. A clear message from the event was the vital role our businesses, schools and communities play in making sure everyone young and old has the Digital Skills required for the 21st Century.
