Details

If you could ask an industry leader a question, what would you ask?

- How do you make tough decisions?
- How do you structure your day?
- What does a CIO do anyway?

I'm genuinely excited to have secured two inspirational industry leaders for our next session to interview on stage.

"TLNW - The Interviews" was by far our most popular format and this session is guaranteed to provide unique insights to help you progress your own journey.

This is an event for the technical leaders of the North West so I would appreciate if you only RSVP if you are in a related discipline. I will manage the invite list to favour tech leaders.

Excited to announce:
