Expert Line-Up for Digital Transformation Event

An Immediate Priority

According to the latest Dell Technologies Digital Transformation (DT) Index, 78% of business leaders believe that digital transformation should be more widespread throughout their organisation, with 51% believing they’ll struggle to meet changing customer demands in the next five years, and 30% fearing their organisation will be left behind.

Digital transformation has clearly become less of a crystal ball strategy and more of an immediate priority. However, before organisations can realise their true potential, some key building blocks must exist for digital strategies to reach fruition.

ActionPoint, along with strategic partner Dell EMC, will host “Digital Transformation – A Practical Guide to Building the Future” on March 22nd in The Dean Hotel. This practical, real-life workshop will bring attendees along the journey of digital transformation through the eyes of our customers.

Leading this journey will be several expert speakers, from both ActionPoint and several of our customers who have recently undertaken key digital transformation projects within their companies. In this piece, we will profile each speaker and panel member and what you can expect on the day.

Speakers

John is CIO of Chill Insurance, Ireland’s largest insurance broker, and is responsible for ICT infrastructure and applications architecture. Innovation is key to Chill’s business model, and John will speak to attendees about “Adopting a Disruptive Mindset to Reclaim the Market”.
