On the 30 January 2020, the UK Government announced that the Global Talent Visa will replace the Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa on 20 February 2020.  The changes are very minor and the Stage 1 endorsement process remains the same.  More information can be found on the Tech Nation website or read my blog about the changes here.

Michelle has interviewed many tech entrepreneurs and tech talent on how they received their Exceptional Talent or Exceptional Promise endorsement. They all shared their stories and how they overcame their challenges to help you apply for the Exceptional Talent or exceptional promise endorsement in digital technologies.

If you would like guidance and help on the Stage 1 Endorsement process or appeals, Michelle helps highly skilled tech entrepreneurs and talent increase their chances and succeed in their application for endorsement.
