With 20 years experience building networks and engaging with CIOs and IT decision-makers, I've been advising companies on the best way to raise their company's solutions profile, understand the issues they are looking to solve and engage with the most senior decision makers in Europe's biggest organisations. With a keen understanding of the changing role of the CIO and the challenges they face, I've most recently been producing conferences to bring CIOs face to face with the technologies and business strategies that can make them meet those goals.
