#DebutTalk Live Twitter Chat Recap: Skill Gaps

You probably have a skill gap. You probably have a couple of skill gaps. After all, no matter how good you are at something, there is always room for improvement. There’s been tons of talk about a ‘digital skills gap’ in the UK for months, and more companies are struggling to find candidates who are legitimately equipped to do the job.

This week’s #DebutTalk Twitter Chat aimed to question what skills we need, how to improve those skills, and whether experience is more important. Our #DebutTalk participants came up with some cracking insights; check out our highlights right here.
