In episode 73 of the Sheffield Digital podcast we talk to Natalie Ward, City Manager for CityFibre. We’re also joined by Giorgio Cassella, Head of Marketing at Evoluted and founder of Afterwork.gg, and Adam Jessop, founder and CEO of Endpoint Gaming.
First up, we ask Natalie about how she got into working in broadband connectivity, what changes she has seen over time, and getting more young people into tech careers.
Then we speak to Giorgio and Adam about the eSports scene in Sheffield, how people from the community can get involved, which types of people they need in the industry, and what trends they envisage in the near future.
