How to become an Advocate

Tech London Advocates is an open, inclusive community.

Advocates are founders, investors and global tech leaders, but Advocates are also those on the frontline of tech – students, coders, policymakers, teachers and service providers.

Many Advocates join through referrals or direct introductions to Russ Shaw CBE, founder of Tech London Advocates. But if you contact TLA through the website, or attend one of our events, then Russ will be in touch to confirm your involvement in the network.

Russ will explain the vision, mission and structure of Tech London Advocates.

Once you have been introduced to the group, you will officially become an Advocate. You will be announced in the next monthly newsletter, can attend Tech London Advocates events, participate in at least one of the TLA Working Groups and have access to a community of more than 20,000 tech leaders in the UK.

There is no time commitment or minimum engagement required to being an Advocate; it is designed for busy people and you can engage with the group as much or as little as you like. There are, however, three asks of each Advocate, irrespective of their level of engagement:

– To share key messages about the tech sector in London and the rest of the UK (TLA messaging is provided on the website and in monthly email updates)

– When ready, help expand the TLA network by introducing an Advocate

– Adopt the ethos of helping one another for the ‘greater good’ as a means of establishing a strong and vibrant technology sector
