About the speaker
Crispin Read CEO, The Coders Guild - Industry Led, Community Driven
As Founder and CEO of The Coders Guild Crispin is passionate about using business as a force for social mobility and levelling up. He began his tech career as a Developer in the 90s and founded The Coders Guild in 2015 to address digital skills gaps facing the industry.
He now fronts a fast-growing Leeds-based training company fuelled by a social mission to deliver positive change for business and communities across the North. This sees him advising the tech world on progressing their digital workforce and leading an organisation that develops future leaders from the UK’s most underrepresented groups.
Since Crispin launched the business, The Coders Guild has supported hundreds of people in launching a career in tech through its ground-breaking Apprenticeships and industry-leading Digital Skills Training.
