The Computer Weekly 500 Club continues its programme of talks by top IT leaders this summer, with presentations by Paul Stevens, vice-president, UK pharmaceuticals IT at GlaxoSmithKline, and Rolls-Royce CIO Jonathan Mitchell.
On 20 June, Stevens will be discussing innovative approaches to gaining business value from IT. And on 18 July Mitchell will be examining the changing role of the CIO.
Founded in 1993, the Computer Weekly 500 Club is an invitation-only forum for senior IT directors in the country's leading organisations. It was set up to provide business inspiration and networking opportunities.
At its regular meetings, CIO-level speakers lead extended discussions on topics of relevance to senior IT management in a confidential and friendly environment. The events are free of charge, strictly off-the-record and free from supplier pressure.
The core activity of the 500 Club, which is supported by Erudine, CAI Europe and BT Global Services, is a series of at least 10 meetings a year. Speakers present briefly and without visual aids. About 40 minutes is reserved for formal discussion, with at least another two hours available for informal discussion over drinks.
Computer Weekly facilitates introductions between members at the meetings to maximise networking opportunities.
Membership of the Computer Weekly 500 Club for IT directors is strictly by invitation only. If you would like to be considered, or would like more information, please e-mail Beverley de Valmency at Computer Weekly.
