TRANSFORMED. The conference agenda and speakers are put together as such to reveal insights into how some of the biggest organisations are going about investing, from real business use cases to success stories and where the challenges may lie.



NETWORKING. It's an invaluable part of events and where real value often presents itself, meeting those who are facing the same challenges and coming together to solve similar issues. Our agendas feature numerous opportunities throughout the day to meet like minded folk from various industries and backgrounds. We have previously had extremely positive feedback from delegates who have found long lasted business relationships with those who they wouldn't normally meet from opposite industries and largely seeking out the same solutions to industry wide transformation sticking points.
