Our popular Tech Issue returns for its fourth year to again celebrate the strengths of our tech and digital sector. Inside you’ll find profiles and advice from some of the most influential and promising tech talent based in the North East. Among them is Professor Sue Black who credits technology and education as transforming her and her three children’s lives. Meanwhile, our cover star is Bruce Daisley – the lead of Twitter across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Ok, so he’s not from the region or based here, but we couldn’t resist catching up with the tech influencer when he travelled to Newcastle last month to speak at local schools and the Dynamo Annual Dinner.
