Presentations at IT in the Park

Julie L. Mohr - International Keynote Speaker


Speaking for the first time in Scotland. "Living in the Disruption Economy". Customers are voting with their currency, choosing Uber over taxis, Amazon over the department store, Airbnb over hotels, and Netflix over the network TV station. If we are not careful in IT, we will also become extinct. We need to develop strategies that innovate, reduce friction and stop waiting for our customers to come to us.

09.30 - 10.00

Leigh Mullin - Head of Service Improvement at Aberdeen Standard Investments


Working in a large Financial Services organisation with a platform as expansive as ServiceNow it can be a real challenge to decide what to do next. Regardless of the product you are using Leigh's approach to Continuous Service Improvement Planning will most certainly be of interest. Getting the balance of risk, reward, timescales and resources is key to success.

10.00 - 10.30

Imam Saygili and Olly Phillips Freshworks


Lots of some companies have successfully transformed traditional customer interaction, Uber, Amazon and DPD to name a few. But, we don't always seem to be up to speed in the ITSM world. So what lessons can we learn and how can we improve the customer experience? Olly and Imam from Freshworks will talk us through a few examples and give us some 'hands on' practical demonstration.

10.30 - 11.00

Vicky Glynn - Product Manager at brightsolid


"Is 'cloud first' Cloud Cuckoo Land?" great title for a presentation. According to industry research, by 2019, around 80% of IT budgets will be dedicated to cloud technology. Brightsolid is Scotland’s only dedicated and complete colocation and managed cloud solutions company, so, it will be 'very' interesting to hear Vicky share her thoughts, experience and predictions on cloud movements.

Laura Yeomans - Head of Customer Success at Upland Software and Norman Managed Services


At our Now Box event in May Laura scored higher than any other presenter. She will be speaking about Knowledge Centered Service again and this time she's bringing a friend. In order to get dramatically different results, we have to do something dramatically different.  For most organizations, KCS® represents a new way to think about knowledge, and the benefits are profound. Includes real world examples :-)
