ACS Industry Insights: 9

Asking the compelling questions, stirring debate, instigating change. In this age of digital disruption, today’s ICT thought leaders are looking to the future and setting a path for others to follow.

About Episode 9 - Simon Moorfield

ACS Industry Insights features some of the ICT industry’s most respected leaders. The series explores innovation, challenges and opportunities in tech and considers what might be in store in ICT’s constantly evolving world.

Watch live on Tuesday 26 June at 5.30pm for a sharp and fruitful conversation with Simon Moorfield, Executive General Manager at AGL.

The job nature of the traditional executive has been disrupted and has evolved. They must deliver services based on disruptive tech and be impactful industry leaders. They must pre-empt threats, define then live their own roles. They must test and initiate then bring products and services to scale. Today's CIOs are adopting roles that drive growth. 

Catch Simon speaking about life as an executive, his 14 years climbing the ranks at GE, plus his expert take on analytics, mobile, cloud computing, collaboration tech, legacy modernisation, security and virtualisation.

Audience participants will have an opportunity to have their questions answered live during the broadcast.
