Silicon Valley comes to the UK Summit 2021

In November, Silicon Valley Comes to the UK brought global tech leaders and the business community from Silicon Valley together at its annual summit, connecting people in the UK and around the world.

The final day, Global Game-Changers, was chaired by Seven Hills co-founder Michael Hayman and centred on conversations about high-impact, thought-provoking trends in the global business landscape, real-world stories of scaling a venture, and the power of innovation. We heard from:

  • Jacqueline de Rojas, President, TechUK
  • Aaron Smith, Head of Innovation Ecosystem, Fidelity Investments
  • John Liu, Senior Partner, ChinaEquity Group
  • Burzin Luth, VP, London & Partners
  • Charlotte Rannala, AI Innovation Manager, NHS
  • Sarah Kerruish, Chief Strategy Officer, Kheiron Medical
  • Sue Kelsey, EVP Global Product, Mastercard
  • Dr. Rachel Carey, Chief Scientist, Zinc
  • Toni Fola-Alade, Founder & CEO, Nomad Bank
  • Tabitha Goldstaub, CognitionX Co-Founder

The summit was concluded by Michael hosting a fireside chat with Alistair Mitchell, partner at EQT Ventures. Discussing the future of entrepreneurship, Alistair said

“For founders building businesses today, it’s not about making a tonne of money. It’s about changing the world. Purpose drives profit. Go big, but do it responsibly and do it with impact.”

Commenting on Michael’s involvement as chair for the Global Game-Changers event, Janet Coyle, Managing Director – Business Growth, London & Partners, said

“Michael was a superb host for our SVC2UK game changers virtual summit. He provided a unique combination of energy, tech knowledge and flair, expertly navigating the flow of the event and providing insightful summaries. A true professional.”
