Computer Weekly 500 Club discusses people development Weds 17 June

Nick McCowen, IT director at medicines supply company IDIS, winner of a Best of the Best award at the recent Computer Weekly Best Places to work in IT event, will speak at the CW500 Club on 17 June at 6.30pm.
He will talk about the company’s IT strategy meshes with its business strategy, and how it develops its people.
Weybridge-based IDIS sources and supplies medicines to UK hospitals and pharmacies. With customers in over 60 countries worldwide, it supplies 600 different medicines a month to medical professionals.
The company encourages staff by awarding “Bright Stars” to recognise outstanding performance or commitment from individuals and teams. Half of the IT team members have been recognised in this way.
Colin Beveridge, Chairman and Chief Integration Officer at The Better Practice Forum, will also talk about the broad theme of talent management, based on experience gained from evaluating IT/IS departments as an interim director. Colin will address such topics as: giving people room to grow, senior management team optimisation, and motivating underperforming people and teams.

Computer Weekly 500 Club meetings are held in the Beech Suite at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, 6pm for 6.30pm start. To apply to come along, email cw500club@rbi.co.uk.
