Join The Spectator for breakfast and a panel discussion to discuss the latest technology and innovation.

The telephone. The steam engine. The internet. Britain has a long history of inventing brilliant new technologies, processes and designs and continues to be at the forefront of the very latest developments in this field. From the treatment of chronic diseases via biotechnology, to mobile banking platforms that have transformed national economies, technology is developing at a rate that keeps even the most advanced technophile on their toes.

As this acceleration continues, how do we ensure that UK businesses are suitably equipped to use these emerging technologies and maintain the UK’s position as the leaders in innovation?
