February 20 // Kasteel Tivoli
CIONET is pleased to invite you to an exclusive dinner hosted by François Locoh-Donou, President and CEO of F5 Networks. From Togo over France to the USA, on his life journey, François developed a unique and inspiring personal philosophy that he uses to help guide F5 into a new era. Find out from François himself how to disrupt the status quo, to keep curiosity alive and ultimately drive top-line growth from IT.
Nowadays, IT is driving market capitalization, and the highest valued organisations are driven by IT or applications. We have entered the era of application capital. F5 invites you to an open discussion in the presence of François and your peers. In addition, expect a sneak preview to the High Secure Organisation Program to be kicked off by amongst others ICT Media and F5 Networks.
As seating for this executive dinner is exclusive and limited, please confirm your presence to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. We look forward to welcoming you on February 20th!
