NearForm Webinar 20th June, 2019
Online Webinar

Event Description

Join NearForm's webinar as they discuss Creating an Environment for Accelerated Innovation

The role of IT in the organisation is not just about technology and solutions anymore, it’s about agility and speed and the way of ‘doing’ IT to become dynamic responsive service providers to the business. The evolving business-oriented strategic role of the CIO as they transition into innovation leaders is not new but as businesses strive to remain competitive in an increasingly automated and digital world, the CIO has a growing multi focus on not just technology implementation but people and processes too.


Together with Clare Dillon, Head of Strategic Partnerships at NearForm, we’ll hear from organisations who have witnessed and those who have undergone successful transformation of their culture through re-thinking of their approach to people and in-demand skills; to processes and methodologies for continuous development; and to technology alternatives and sources of innovation.


Our panel will discuss:

  • Why innovation stalls and obstacles to avoid
  • When and how to disrupt your existing delivery model
  • How much should enterprise IT think and act like a start-up
  • Risk & reward of open source solutions and methodologies
  • IT redesign: best practice, winning approaches and getting your board on board

Creating an Environment for Accelerated Innovation

The role of IT in the organisation is not just about technology and solutions anymore, it’s about
agility and speed and the way of ‘doing’ IT to become dynamic responsive service providers to
the business. The evolving business-oriented strategic role of the CIO as they transition into
innovation leaders is not new but as businesses strive to remain competitive in an increasingly
automated and digital world, the CIO has a growing multi focus on not just technology
implementation but people and processes too.


Together with Clare Dillon, Head of Strategic Partnerships at NearForm, we’ll hear from
organisations who have witnessed and those who have undergone successful transformation of
their culture through re-thinking of their approach to people and in-demand skills; to processes
and methodologies for continuous development; and to technology alternatives and sources of
innovation.

Words from our attendees
  • "Another concise, factual and easy to follow course. Presentation was very good.” - Margaret Wearing (ATT)

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.

  • 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
  • A very informative and insightful day. Would highly recommend this event to any progressive procurement professional/organisation

    - David Golding - Head of Procurement, JLL
