For our first Tech Talks of 2019, we are delighted to welcome Jim Mawdsley, Chief Executive of Generator, and Digital Union.

We will be joining forces once again with The Industry Angel Business Podcast. Host Ian Farrar will delve into Jim's story, how he became an adopted Geordie, his passion for music and live festivals and building up the North East's leading digital network - Digital Union.

A born entrepreneur, Jim has worked with Generator for 20 years now. For around ten years, he has led the organisation, achieving some fantastic work with the creative, music and more recently digital sectors - creating innovative business support programmes that deliver real results.

The journey has not been without it's challenges, and as well as developing support initiatives for businesses across the North East, Jim has led the team and evolved the business model for Generator as a business itself.

What to expect

In an informal Q&A session, hosted by Ian Farrar, Jim will share his experiences and the challenges of building a business and network organisation to support the music, creative and digital sectors in the North East. This event will be streamed live via Facebook and Twitter, and will be produced as a podcast episode for The Industry Angel Business Podcast.
