Testimonials

Trevor Didcock  _ Futurice _ Affinity Water

Trevor Didcock

NED Affinity Water, ACOG and Futurice,

I am certain that I will speak for all members of the advisory board in applauding your fantastic thought leadership through the last year. Plotting a path through everything that has gone on, and continues to go on, is no easy task and yet you and the UK and European team have done a brilliant job in researching key topics, facilitating quality debate and writing thought provoking papers. There is no doubt in my mind that CIONET is the premier networking and thought leadership vehicle available to technologists. I know we have the likes of Gartner and Forrester etc but in terms of getting smart people together to talk about important and prescient things – nobody does it better!
Mark-Parr

Mark Parr

Global Director of Information Technology, HFW

Being able to continue to attend CIONET events over the last year, has been invaluable.  The topics discussed are always insightful, with the added benefit of hearing from peers across various sectors.  For me, having the opportunity to be involved in a conversation that can provide perspectives I hadn't considered and that allows me to connect with other digital leaders who are facing similar challenges is vital. From joining the very many CIONET discussions, I have be able to share experiences and ideas and to learn about new technologies and concepts.  With events being conducted in such a way as to promote conversation (ably chaired by Roger Camrass), I am able to make better informed decisions that will allow me to help shape the delivery of technology across my organisation.

Natasha Davydova

Global Head of IT and Information Security, Allianz

“The CIONET discussion on ‘Company as a Platform’ reinforced my decision on the career move from the banking industry to Salesforce, one of the most innovative, industry-leading customer success platform companies, providing the world’s leading enterprise cloud ecosystem. This is where I see the core of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.”
