WorkInConfidence is pleased to announce that we have been selected as one of ConnectTVT’s 50 Game Changers for 2017.

Launched in June 2014, ConnectTVT aims to “put the Thames Valley back on the tech and digital cluster maps”, giving a voice to innovative companies in the region through a varied events programme. ConnectTVT’s latest events initiative, Digital Gum, offers digital skills training for apprentices and return to work parents.

50 Game ChangersThe 50 Game Changers showcases the Thames Valley’s best home-grown organisations, demonstrating that the region is full of inspiring start-up and fast growth scale-up businesses. Many of these are based here in Reading and we’re delighted to be included this year alongside some fantastic organisations.

This year’s Game Changers were revealed on 22nd June at a launch evening at Reading’s Thames Tower. Held on the 14th floor, complete with terrace offering impressive views, the venue was a perfect backdrop for celebrating businesses paving the way in the Thames Valley.

In introducing the 2017 Game Changers, director Louize Clarke comments, “It has always been more than a list of highest turnover companies – it’s about those championing change. To survive in the competitive digital landscape, we have to encourage a diverse mix of businesses across our innovation layers. We love giving a louder voice to those supporting community projects, the early stage start-ups right through to those heading towards their exits.”

WorkInConfidence CEO Tim Martin values the growing network of innovative, early-stage businesses in the Thames Valley, commenting, “The area is full of other like-minded entrepreneurs and it is easy to find others who can help your business, support which is invaluable in the early stages and as you look to scale.”

He continued, “Getting recognition as a Game Changer is immensely gratifying and gives everyone in the organisation a real boost. The whole team will be really proud.”
