The Loss of Shared Experience

Attendees of The IT Directors’ Forum Autumn are invited for a reason: they lead, innovate, change and integrate within their respective companies, often driving the business.  Whether it is adjusting for BYOD demands,  engaging employees through gamification, or simply keeping information safe, each and every attendee has their fingerprint on the future of their organisation.

With more technology around us to facilitate communication and interaction, often we find ourselves more isolated, engaging in Q&A rather than intelligent discourse. The concept of ‘digging deeper’ is lost.  Serendipitous moments of uncovering truth do not happen. Openly sharing ideas is becoming an extinct practice.

That is why this year  we have dedicated over 50% of our conference to the discussion-group format. Moderated by your peers, these sessions are specifically designed to allow each and every attendee to share their successes, failures, concerns and questions. With such a vast and far-reaching amount of knowledge aboard the ship, it would be a shame not to share it with the group. Like pieces in a puzzle, each attendee can  contribute to uncovering an answer to questions  we all face.

Discussion group topics this year include:

• Social Media
• Mobile
• Marketing/IT
• Virtualisation
• The Threat Landscape
• Gamification
• Operational Risk Oversight

Only 10 delegate places left at the Autumn 2013 Forum.

120 delegates have already confirmed their place. Most recent delegates to sign up include...

AXA PPP Healthcare – Head of IT
LCH Clearnet – CTO
UK Drainage Network – Group IT Director
Welcome Financial Services – IT Director
Brightside Group Plc – IT Director
Mitchells and Butlers – Head of Online Technology

Why Toby Clarke, Group IT Director at Abbey Protection Group attends.

“The ITDF represents an unparalleled opportunity to meet a broad array of suppliers, indulge in some quality industry sessions and network with over 100 other likeminded IT Directors.  I have attended this event for a number of years as quite simply my time aboard has a very tangible pay-back to my organisation and I would urge any IT Director to not just take my word for it, attend.” 
Toby Clarke, Group IT Director, Abbey Protection Group

Michael Portillo confirmed as the opening keynote speaker – Britain and Europe: coaltion and rupture

Michael-Portillo.pngIn our opening keynote this Autumn, Michael will explain what went wrong with the coalitions policy for growth and how economic improvement will remain elusive as long as the euro crisis continues. As Europe seeks to create a political union and is absorbed with its currency, Michael will share his views on why it is distracted from the bigger problem in play - how to reduce the size of government to regain competitiveness. 
Joining Michael on the keynote speaker line-up will be Dr. Steve Peters, Psychiatrist with Team GB and Author who will share his successful mind management programme that has been used to help elite athletes to optimise the functioning of their mind by understanding how it works. Followed by Professor Stephen Carver from Cranfield University sharing his unique perspective on ‘How not to make a catastrophe out of a crisis.’
