KS Notes: 

  1. The above V3 draft agenda may be updated slightly, depending on whether confirmation is received from provisionally anticipated speaker organisations / speakers (shown in italics).
  2. techUK will issue the meeting invite via MS Teams or Zoom on Tuesday June 2, 2020 to registered participants and guests.
  3. techUK advice is to keep on-line meeting to about 2 hours – so we will need to be time efficient to finish by 1620. There will be a prompt start at 14:00 !

This meeting is the follow-up to the meeting of 30 March.

Joining details for this webinar will be sent out separately closer to the start date.
