TechWorks is pleased to announce the founder of the UK’s first social network for business as its guest speaker at this year’s Gala Dinner & Awards Ceremony.
Having been a business owner for more than 20 years, Penny Power referred to herself as an Accidental Entrepreneur for many years. Stepping out of employed work and into the risky world of business ownership was a powerful learning.

Penny founded Ecademy in 1998, pre-dating LinkedIn by four years. She was awarded an OBE in 2014 for her contribution to entrepreneurship in the social digital sector.

The Entrepreneur, Community Builder, Professional Speaker & Author will host the major social and networking event of the year for the UK’s Tech Industry. As well as sharing her open and honest account of life as a business entrepreneur with the audience, Penny will announce each of the TechWorks Award winners and present them with their awards.
