Gen-i delivers free conference to help businesses understand digital


Keynote speakers Geraldine McBride, Tim Longhurst, Nick Tuffley and Chris Tennant Brown share their perspectives on the future trends set to impact NZ businesses

Strategies for transforming business with digital technology will be the top discussion at Telecom ICT services division Gen-i’s FWD_Live business technology conference, being held at the Aotea Centre in Auckland’s CBD on 1 May.

FWD_Live is designed for business professionals from any industry, be they business leaders or professionals in ICT, HR, marketing, sales or operations, and is free to attend.

The one-day event will feature an extensive line up of local and international keynote speakers, as well as panel discussions, breakout workshop sessions with global experts including Cisco, HP, Microsoft and VMWare, and hands-on technology experiences.

Gen-i CEO Tim Miles says the conference is focused on helping businesses navigate the challenges that come with utilising digital solutions for better business.

“While businesses recognise that today’s modern connected consumer expects them to be fully equipped for this digital age, many are also looking for ways to keep up to speed with the rapid shifts in technology,” says Miles.

“Digital solutions are today becoming embedded across every aspect of business - for delivering superior customer service and driving the operational agility and efficiency businesses need to stay competitive. Modern technologies like cloud and mobile, as well as social collaboration and smart data, are significantly reshaping business models and processes.”

“This year’s FWD_LIVE Conference will provide the inspiration and insights delegates need to decide which technologies will really create value for their business.”

Keynote speakers are:

· Geraldine McBride, economist, founder & CEO of MyWave, speaking on how business must adapt and evolve or risk being left behind in the business world

· Tim Longhurst, acclaimed trend-spotter and futurist, speaking on the future of business

· Nick Tuffley and Chris Tennant Brown, analysts for ASB Bank, speaking on what’s in store for the Australasian economy over the next 12 months
