IT Strategy Briefing 2016 South

In such a dynamic environment how do we make sense of the tools on offer and focus on future-proofing our organisations? How do we challenge ourselves to focus on the end user as human beings at work rather than the corporate perspective of devices, platforms, mediums and controls?


The fourth annual IT Strategy Briefing (ITSB16) will be held in the South for the first time this year at the McLaren Technology Centre. IT Lab will be mixing thought leadership with practical application, showcasing innovative uses of technology and talking through the emerging trends and opportunities relevant to all organisations.

ITSB 2016 provides a platform for passionate leaders and technologists to find inspiration and a chance to network with their peers.
