We are delighted to announce the 2013 CFG IT Conference
Get up to date with new trends in ICT with the 2013 CFG IT Conference. This year guarantees to be a lively and informative day. We have put together a programme that we hope you will find both interesting and challenging, covering topics such as the Cloud, implementing CRM systems and working remotely.
Opening this year's conference we have Nigel Shadbolt, Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Southampton and Information Adviser to the UK Government. He will be examining developments in the Web and in particular the dramatic growth of open data and the 'semantic web' and their implications for not for profit organisations.
As usual we will have two streams to the conference giving you a choice of ten sessions to attend as well as a lunchtime workshop given by thankQ on the pitfalls of implementing a CRM system. There will be a mixture of charity case-studies, for example Jane Deal, Citizens Advice and Germaine Faulkner, RNIB on CRM, Richard Craig, ctt on working remotely during the Olympics, and Richard Moulds, the Royal British Legion on business IT investment risks - as well as expert guidance. There will also be sessions on outsourcing, implementing the Cloud, and cyber-crime.
We are sure the combination of strategic focus and technological trends will give you food for thought and help you understand the impact and implications of IT for your organisation.
Why you need to attend?
- Get your complete update on all IT issues you should be aware of in 2013 in just one day
- Meet colleagues and discuss other organisations' experiences
- Hear high-level speakers from the corporate and charity world
Who should attend?
Finance Directors, Directors of Resources, IT Directors, IT Managers, Chief Executives, and Trustees with an interest in IT.
Delegates attending the conference are invited to a reception immediately following the end of the programme.
The reception provides the ideal opportunity to network with speakers and delegates at the end of the day.
There will be an exhibition alongside the conference programme. Exhibitors working in a range of service areas will be available for delegates to meet, ask questions and share information.
The informal setting is an excellent opportunity to find products and service suppliers who can assist in tackling your charities' problems and who can help to make the management of your charity more efficient.
The conference timetable allows delegates plenty of opportunity to browse the exhibition and network during breaks.
