Computers is pleased to announce the return of Festival of IT leaders, the premier gathering of UK-based senior technology professionals. This year’s festival will take place over three days spread over three weeks, with an in-person conference kicking off the festival on October 4 at the Cavendish Conference Center in London.

The event is exclusive to senior IT executives from end-user companies only.

The next two days of the festival will be virtual conferences broadcast live from our studio in Covent Garden on 11 and 18 October.

The festival will be an exceptional opportunity for IT decision makers to come together to learn, collaborate and tackle their biggest technology and business challenges.

Machine learning? Automation? Digital transformation? Cloud integration? These are some of the challenges facing today’s IT leaders and each will be discussed and debated at the event.

The thought leaders, IT departments and technical teams who will turn these technologies into tools and services that will revolutionize our workplaces and homes are helping to lay the groundwork for the next stage in the evolution of technology. In addition, the demand for technical professionals is at an all-time high. With industry veterans changing employers more regularly than ever before and Gen Z entering the workforce, there’s a renewed confidence and idealism in the role they play, but it also comes with a host of new expectations for their employers.

Agenda highlights include:

Day 1 Keynote: Embracing Future Operating Models Today

Day 1 Panel Discussion – Process Improvement: Recruiting a Neurodiverse Workforce

Day 1: Save the Pixels: Real Applications for Blockchain, Smart Contracts and NFTs

Day 2 Keynote – Tactile Teams: How the CIO’s role is becoming redundant

Day 2 Panel Discussion: Breathless Horror: How Unlimited AI Can Become a Nightmare Scenario

Day 3 Fireside Chat: Subduing Scope 3

This year’s festival will be an experience not to be missed, with IT leaders gathering to hear from visionary speakers, being the first to learn Computer proprietary industry research, collaborate with peers and come up with new thinking that will create actionable change.
