CHAIR'S OPENING REMARKS

08:35 - 09:05

HOW DO WE REMAIN VIABLE IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY

COVID-19 has the potential to be as disruptive, if not more, to an organisation’s continuity of operations as a cyber-attack or even a natural disaster.
Hear how CIOs are preparing IT systems to safely and reliably handle a vast increase in remote workers whilst also delivering digital fulfilment of market demand.

09:05 - 09:45

The Future of Work is not all plain sailing

As the demand for digital skills in the UK continues to grow there are two main challenges. How do we reskill our current staff and how do we increase the size of the pipeline of digital skills overall? Perhaps more challenging is how the working paradigm is changing. The workplace can enforce ways of working which is alien to millennials. Their expectations are different to people who have been in the workforce for longer. Getting the most from new joiners to the workforce is now the major challenge to the on-going success of any business.

Words from our attendees
  • The CIO Event is a truly global event with international perspectives on current IT trends. These include the usual Social, Mobile, Cloud, Security, 'Internet of Things', Big Data/Analytics, Etc. It's somewhat unique in its format in that it provides keynotes, one-to-one meetings, workshops and open areas for discussions. Its strength also lies in the networking of its attendees both at the events and between times through social media environments such as LinkedIn. 

    - Mal Postings - Global CTO - Quintiles
