REC Technology - Christmas meeting & lunch Dear member, 
I am delighted to invite you to attend the last REC Technology Sector Christmas Lunch. 
As 2014 winds down to a close, the sector group meeting will recap on the major developments for the sector this year as well as looking optimistically to 2015 which promises to deliver more opportunity for members as economic growth continues to rise. 
December 4th 2014
09:00 - 12:15 (Lunch at 12:30)
Goodman Derrick LLP, EC4A 4AD
Don't forget you need to book your Christmas Lunch separately - places limited! 
The meeting will focus on:
Expanding overseas – a personal journey
Tony Goodwin, Founder and CEO of Antal International, will discuss his journey into overseas markets. As the UK economy emerges from recession, businesses are keen to expand. Tony’s insight into this journey will educate and illuminate on this often complex and risky journey into new markets. An extended Q & A opportunity will be available to members.
Unlocking Social Media – insights and guidance 
Lisa Jones, a social media expert, will provide guidance to members on social media best practice and how to ensure that 2015 is a year of progress, ROI and not simply ticking boxes.
You want to be confident that you have used social media effectively to market your business, source talent, attract internal talent and not wasted any time or money in the process.  This session will have some tangible takeaways to help recruitment leaders get real value from social media and social recruiting tools.
techUK – a strategic partner for the tech sector
Charlotte Holloway, Director of Policy at techUK, will talk to members about the work of techUK and their latest research on the tech sector in London and beyond.
Having just produced a ground breaking report on the scaling up of high growth firms in conjunction with Sherry Coutu CBE, techUK will focus on the findings of this report in terms of hard GDP growth and jobs.
