C-LEVEL NETWORKING AGENDA

Chief Wine Officer and special guest hosts, IBM, are bringing together a selection of senior IT and technology leaders for a one-off networking and fine dining event in London this December – and you’re invited! Join us at the luxurious City Social for a roundtable discussion on the true potential of automation to achieve your goals. We’ll also enjoy a guided wine tasting with one of just 415 Masters of Wine in the world and a three-course gourmet feast. Secure your place now…

Automation is on everyone’s minds right now, but why is that? One reason is that all predictions point to billions wasted every year on idle or needlessly large cloud resources. For IT, Cloud and Tech leaders looking to capitalise on the moment, there’s been no better time to realistically plot a path to greater automation. It’s time to break down automation silos, improve business performance, and exploit the true potential of AI to accelerate change – and especially change toward a carbon neutral future.

KEY DISCUSSION POINTS

  • How to look at individual automation efforts across the business to ensure they work together holistically
  • The role of automation in enabling you to meet and exceed your organisation’s sustainability goals
  • What organisations like BBC Studios, Bank of America, and Rome’s municipal government did to deliver performance assurances for up to 1,000 VMs while minimising cost

Throughout the night, you’ll hear from speakers including Ebru Binboga (IBM), Alec Kemp (Turbonomic), and Sven Strassburg (IBM) before diving into a unique wine tasting competition. Our Master of Wine will introduce you to several fine wines and then pit you against your peers to determine who has the best palate in the room – our “Chief Wine Officer!” Think you have what it takes?

This exclusive networking experience is open to senior IT and Tech leaders operating in and around London. Places are limited and highly popular – RSVP today to avoid disappointment!
