UK Large business


Join us for an exclusive evening event at BT Tower on 19 October, hosted by BT's collaboration vice president, Andrew Small.

Our recent Digital Dislocation research shows most global businesses are struggling to cope with new, more mobile ways of working.  Coupled with the rise of cloud computing and video, these developments are helping to prevent technology confusion between organisations and their employees, helping them communicate more effectively with their teams and customers. 

Join us together with a small group of your peers for dinner at the top of the BT Tower with fantastic 360 degree views of London, to discuss and share ideas on how to come to grips with these challenges.  you will hear the latest market research findings on collaboration and mobility by expert Marcus Hickman of Davies Hickman Partners Limited.  Marcus will lead the discussion on common issues organisations face working collaboratively.

And to prove it’s not just a business issue – Austin Healey, former England rugby international will lift the lid on teamwork in elite sport (and Strictly Come Dancing…)
