UKA Live thought leadership

Our bespoke UKA Live webcast series focuses on key issues in the news of importance to our audience.

Hosted by a leading technology supplier or sector organisation on a bespoke basis they generally feature outstanding innovation and sector thought leaders for an in-depth discussion on the issue in hand: the pain points and challenges the sector faces and the strategies and technologies that can help surmount them. The aim is to showcase innovation and success and to share learning with the wider audience.
