Introducing the Leeds Digital Ambassadors Programme

Leeds Digital, home to the Leeds' latest tech news and most exciting events, announces its first ever Ambassadors programme.

The Leeds Tech scene is a vibrant and ever-evolving landscape, and building a community with genuine connections is key to driving further development and innovation in the sector. That’s why we are proud to announce our new Leeds Digital Ambassadors programme!

Designed to harness the diverse expertise and passion within the Leeds digital ecosystem, the Ambassador programme will serve as an active catalyst for collaboration, knowledge-sharing, and community building.

What Is The Ambassadors Programme?

We’ve invited some of the city’s best and brightest tech minds to represent Leeds Digital, promoting the innovation and expertise within the Leeds City Region, in the UK and beyond.

Our Ambassadors will represent Leeds Digital and the city’s tech sector, taking every opportunity to discuss Leeds Digital in conversations around the UK and wider, for the benefit of the entire city region ecosystem. They will help us spread the message of inclusivity in tech and our continued dedication to collaboration within the tech sector to bring further opportunities and prosperity to everyone who lives and works here.

“I’m excited to announce the launch of our new Leeds Digital Ambassadors programme. We have a wonderful group of people who live and breathe the Leeds tech sector and are ready to help us tell the world about the innovation and incredible talent we have here. I can’t wait to see the impact that our Ambassadors will have in the years to come.”

– Stuart Clarke MBE, Leeds Digital Festival Director

Our Ambassadors

This first tranche of Ambassadors are active and influential members of the Leeds tech sector, committed to collaboration and inclusion, who have already made significant impacts within the city and beyond. They represent a number of firms and organisations throughout the city, from startups to scaleups to support organisations.

“I’ve been attending Leeds Digital Festival for years – the careers fair is where I got my first full time job in the creative industry! It’s been lovely to see the way it’s developed over the years and that the value its community creates can now be shared year round through the new platform.”

– Alina Cameron, Innovation Lead at Innovate UK
