Leading games companies want to recruit and retain the best. The issue is that the talent pipeline is stalled at the university entrance level as students are, in large numbers, failing to choose computer science and other relevant courses. A further issue is an apparent lack of career progression within the industry, coupled with the comparatively fast obsolescence of skills - inevitable in a fast-moving industry.

Exploring solutions based on practical insight, the panelists draw on their own challenges, success stories and every-day experiences to arrive at a solution that will form the basis of a new and fresh debate.

- Matthew Jeffery of EA discusses the future for the industry from his perspective of talent management within EA
- John Nordlinger of Microsoft Research will reveal lessons learned about the success of 'the rise of the talent competition' in connection with the Microsoft sponsored Imagination Cup in Paris (this is the first year with a games track) and the success of the Microsoft Academic Day for Computer Science Education (a 5 day closed conference for games industry professionals and academics on a cruise ship in Florida)
- Paul Durrant of Abertay University and Director of the longest running and successful young games talent competition: Dare to be Digital, will provide a seasoned view on 'talent competitions that work' and new opportunities for academics beyond undergraduate or Masters courses
- Sanjay Mistry of EA University will reveal lessons learned about CPD (continuing professional development), and
- Dominic Davenport of leading training organisation Escape Studios will propose new ideas for the future of training for games professionals.
