How can you run successful workshops remotely? Lead Engineer Clare Sudbery and Head of Product Andreas England will be kicking off our Made Tech Talks webinar series by sharing their experience of starting up while locking down.

Made Tech are currently partnering with Difrent and Skills for Care to deliver a service that collects data from (and delivers value to) adult social care providers. We planned to spend a fortnight together to kick off our engagement, then lockdown happened and we were forced to go fully remote with only a few days’ notice.

Clare and Andreas will share the highs and lows of bringing together 10 people who have never worked together before, all working from home and in the midst of a global pandemic.


  • Andreas England, Head of Product at Made Tech
  • Clare Sudbery, Lead Engineer at Made Tech
