Event description


Technology, Innovation and Leadership Breakfast Networking

Is about providing people with ideas in technology and business to promote knowledge on the domain of information technology and systems for enabling business processes.

Our first event is about I.T in business and the Importance of vision in business.

Whether you are a large organisation or small business. The challenges are similar.

From a growth prospective we require a strong vision, long term strategies and getting the right people on board to execute the vision.

Information technology is no different and is also critical to operations for most companies and has the power to catapult growth when utilized effectively. Conversely, if things aren't going well with IT, powerful business tools can quickly become frustrating and expensive roadblocks to achieving business objectives.

Since interacting with Technology is part of every employees day our speaker will discuss some of these challenges and provide you with some ideas for you to take away.
