We would like to invite you to the 5th annual Executive Symposium at Cisco Live, 17 - 18 March 2015, at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

At the 2015 Executive Symposium, you'll discover a new business imperative. With technology accelerating the path to business agility, IT leaders find themselves transformed into business technologists, central to both defining and executing the migration roadmap for their organisation's evolution.

Discussions will focus on the technology executive's opportunity to define their organisation's future stance amidst a merging business and technology landscape. Over the next three to five years, technology leaders will have the opportunity to become entrepreneurs focused on driving digital business; connectors linking people and ideas across organisations; and futurists anticipating the changes in how people will live, work and play. Business technologists come to the Executive Symposium's incubation ground for peer ideation and problem-solving that helps them lead the change in their organisations.

The 2015 event will focus on:

  • The macro-economic landscape and the implications for business and IT in and beyond 2015
  • Capitalising on FAST IT, transitions in cloud services and Internet of Everything creating more meaningful customer experiences that enable productivity improvements
  • Addressing evolving Cybersecurity challenges
  • Making data actionable and influential on business strategy
  • New leadership imperatives for business transformation and growth

Through active dialogue with peers, industry visionaries and pragmatic business leaders, you'll walk away from this program with solid perspectives and new strategies that will help you promote success for your organisation now and in the future.

Building on what we are learning from global partners and customers, the group of business technology peers assembled at the 2015 Executive Symposium will be a resource to discover and refine the strategies guiding your thinking as you push forward through the next critical transitions.

Participation in the symposium is by invitation only for IT leaders. To register for the Executive Symposium, please follow the link in your invitation.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Executive Symposium in March.
