IoD Suffolk Panel Debates “Education or Experience”

IoD Suffolk Panel Debates “Education or Experience”

With changes in the workplace and the far-reaching effects the pandemic will have on both short and long-term recruitment and working practices, it could not be timelier to discuss the merits of education and experience to employers seeking new talent for their business. Does education such as a degree hold more value than work experience? Is it time to demand both from prospective employees and how can that become a realistic expectation?

The Institute of Directors (IoD) Suffolk is hosting an online panel discussion on 16th November 2020 16.00-17.30 hours,  to consider how organisations can ensure the workforce of tomorrow is adequately prepared for a different working environment, with relevant education and experience.

Speakers include internationally renowned multi-disciplinary artist and designer, founder and CEO of Creative Computing Club, Matthew C. Applegate, Interim Chair for IoD Suffolk John Cockburn-Evans, Scrutton Bland Partner, Sue Gull, CEO and mentor Graham Kill, and CEO and charity Upbeat Heart Support Patron, Daemmon Reeve.

The online event is open to IoD members and non-members and tickets can be booked on the IoD website
