Future of Work: IT Leadership in the Next Decade

As digitisation and the pace of change transform everything we know about business, it’s imperative that CIOs respond to market trends and build the next-generation workforce. It’s no small task, but the key to IT talent is understanding skill shifts and knowing when to retain, retrain, recruit or even outsource.

This panel discussion will look at the skills IT organisations must possess to respond to the business and the shifts that can propel IT from a technology culture to a business culture that executes technology.

09:35 - 10:10

Going Beyond the Hype – Why Artificial Intelligence Changes Everything

Artificial intelligence is fundamentally changing our world and how we as a society interact with it.  AI has extended the human capability to offer solutions to challenges, both simple and complex, from influencing shopping behaviors to solving complex medical problems, optimizing operations and putting autonomous vehicles on the roads. Every industry is rapidly being re-shaped, and new leaders will emerge. In this session we will discuss the impact AI is having on business, the competitive advantages that this emerging technology can bring and the repercussions of being left behind.

Words from our attendees
  • This was our first experience with Global Business Events and first impressions are important. I was impressed by the level of seniority at the event. The venue worked well, the size of the event was good for networking and the 1−2−1 business
    meetings were strong. Well done and I look forward to the next event’.

    - Rob Simms - Sales Director, BOX
  • 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

    - David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL
  • Congratulations on a superb event! A well worked agenda with relevant content and an invaluable opportunity to meet with a senior audience in an environment as stunning and inspiring as the Celtic Manor.Throughout my esteemed career I have attended more events than I care to recall, but this one really stands for me as being amongst the best! I would like to thank the team at GBE for their diligence and commitment to creating a outstanding event from start to finish. Thanks
