Russ Shaw, Founder of Tech London Advocates, said “The race for talent is a challenge facing tech companies around the world. To realize their full potential and scale, tech companies need to attract and retain world-class talent at pace. Whilst countries like the UK need to develop home-grown talent to meet this demand, it’s also important for tech companies to access international tech talent to fuel their growth. By working closely with Globalization Partners we can help London’s tech businesses draw on their local knowledge and expertise to access talent around the world.”
