Guest Speaker: Jamie Bartlett, award-winning Author and host of BBC2’s ‘Secrets of Silicon Valley’ will explore the next wave of Silicon Valley's global disruption and what this will mean for all of us.

Predictive analytics in politics, the advance of military robots and data breaches on the Dark Net are all big-picture topics.  But as a senior tech leader, what do you need to start thinking about today? What are the biggest threats, the biggest opportunities and how can you prepare for the unknown future of tomorrow?

Join us to debate and share insight on the following key topics:

#1: AI, algorithms & automation in the modern workplace
#2: Cybersecurity: preparing for the worst
#3: Hedging your bets with Hybrid IT

Exclusive to senior CIO and C-suite IT professionals, OCSL's quarterly Dinner is fast becoming established as a must-attend event for senior tech leaders to:

  • network with like-minded peers from different industries
  • challenge your thinking on Cloud and everything in between
  • develop a fresh perspective
  • compare benchmark efforts
  • explore latest best practice
  • discuss strategies
  • learn from other CxOs who face the same challenges with suppliers, technologies and techniques.

In a personal and confidential setting (it's Chatham House Rules so what's said in the room, stays in the room), the roundtable format is an invaluable opportunity to take time out, challenge your established thinking and come back to your IT strategy with a fresh perspective.

CIO, UK Legal Sector

“The last event OCSL hosted gave me a different perspective on how other CIO’s across sectors are using technology.  I’m interested in how others they are preparing their organisation for change, and the technologies that are likely to have the biggest impact.”

"The diversity of the participants added to the evening with all participants at different stages of the Technology Implementation curve. Who needs Gartner!"
