Mike Cope spent ten years as CIO at University College London (UCL) before joining Tribal as CTO in 2019.

In times of great change, we are holding our free of charge, online conferences (W/C 12th October 2020) to discuss the significant issues that will help colleges and training providers become more resilient and continue to deliver quality education.
