Tech Talks

When: 30 November 2011 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Are you making the most of technology in your business? Tech Talks examines three areas of technology to show how we can improve our business with the right tools: Mobile Innovation: Tim Kindberg is the Managing Director of Matter 2 Media Ltd. During his talk: New Developments in Mobile & Pervasive Applications, Tim will tell us about his experiences with Smart phones and related technologies during his 10 year career as a Senior Researcher at Hewlett Packard and his later start-up business. Tim's experiences will totally expand your thinking when it comes to mobile technology and making the most out of it for your business. (Did you know: New Look increased their sales by 45% after they launched their mobile phone site in April this year) Cloud Computing: James Cook, owner of SpiderGroup, gives a talk on the future of Cloud Computing. He set up SpiderGroup 9 years ago after finishing a Chemistry degree at Bristol University and their original mission statement was "to help businesses to get the most out of technology" and they remain true to this motto today. In particular James will be addressing the questions around the cloud: Is it secure? Is it expensive? How do I know if it's right for me? Social Media: Internet Evangelist & Business Specialist, Dickie Armour recently became a Non-Executive Director of Nominet, the central registry for all UK domain names. Dickie is also a Hootsuite Certified Professional and will be talking about how social media can massively enhance our online communications. Tech Talks also allows you to interact, network and speak one-to-one to our panel of speakers. The SpiderGroup team will also be on hand to provide live one-to-one demonstrations during the networking breaks if you wish to see how Cloud Computing might work for your business
