About Tech Talks

Who are you listening to, and why do they do it?

founder of Tech Talks Podcast series

David Savage

Tech Talks started because too many tech leaders operate in silos. The change happening around them is so fast but when you’re stuck in delivery mode that change could pass you by. So I wanted to connect people, give them a platform to share their experiences and highlight the issues tech leaders are facing.

I love the podcast because the tech community is so diverse. The application of tech is so wide-raging, and the new sectors embracing tech lead to new innovation and ways of working. I get to meet inspiring people, leaders who are building things, not just companies and teams but values and ideas.

When I started in tech recruitment I knew very little about technology. I’ll never be a techie but I am a geek. I’ve always loved science-fiction, fantastic ideas and world-changing stories. OK, so it’s not Star Trek, but actually what’s happening in the tech sector is more startling because its science-reality and the people making it happen are inspiring. I’ve also always loved writing and creating content, so the podcast allows me to indulge in work I’m passionate about.

As the series grows, its ability to positively impact the industry only increases. I want to keep giving a platform to younger businesses as well as the established names. I want to lift the lid on success and share failures for everyone to learn from them. Most of all I want the show to be a vehicle connecting tech leaders and enthusiasts, getting them out of the trenches and helping each other navigate through the changing environment they find themselves in.

If you want to be part of that community in any way, get in touch.

Jack Pearce

I’ve worked for Harvey Nash for nearly 3 years in the Client Engagement / Bid team as a Senior Bid and Content Writer.

I have to write a lot about tech trends and the latest advancements in the area, but I will happily admit I am not a tech expert as such! That said, I do have a passion for technology and how it serves us on a day to day basis, how it improves our livelihood and how new innovations can change perspectives and ideals.

I’m a writer so like to think I have a creative spark; outside of work I try to compose poems, short stories and blogs in my spare time.  I’m an avid fan of a gritty series or an engrossing film, especially Sci-Fi, Crime and Comedy; Westworld being a recent favourite, if you’re a fan of Augmented Reality it doesn’t get better than that. All techies should also watch Silicon Valley and Black Mirror.

Due to my age and upbringing I am something of millennial lefty. Every week on the show I will be talking with Dave and bringing a new ‘tech product’ to discuss, Dave usually thinks the tech is unnecessary but I do my best to persuade him otherwise...
