The opening episode of TechBlast’s new podcast webinar series Launchpad featured Tech Returners CEO Beckie Taylor.

Launchpad, brought to you in association with Tyto PR, will reveal what it takes to scale a successful technology startup via honest conversations with founders who have a story to tell.

Taylor scaled her business alongside co-founder James Heggs over five years whilst raising two very young children. Specialising in the training and placing of mid-senior level professionals looking to re-enter the workplace after a career break in the tech sector, it was inspired by Taylor’s own experience when she returned to a high-flying HR role following maternity leave.

Launchpad was streamed on and across social media platforms at 12pm on Friday 28th July. It is now available on YouTube and all major podcast platforms.

The episode covers:

• Defining a flexible workforce

• The opportunities & challenges around building a flexible workforce

• The purpose and journey of Tech Returners, acquired by Northcoders in February

• Reader questions

• Practical tips for building a flexible workforce – ‘Rocket Fuel’
