Roger Ellis, former IT controller of Blue Circle Industries, last week launched the IT Directors' Network, a new independent user group.

The 200-strong group is a non-fee, not-for-profit social network of current and former IT directors who meet regularly to share experiences without suppliers present.

"Former IT directors have the opportunity to keep abreast of what is going on in the profession, and current IT directors can meet and learn from their peers and also from people who have been in senior positions in major organisations," said Ellis.

President of the IT Directors' Network is Lord Renwick, president of the Parliamentary/industry group Eurim, and the user group's co-founder is Julie Loveday, formerly of Integralis.

"IT directors are increasingly under a lot of pressure - more than ever before - and this is an opportunity for people to relax and sound off with kindred spirits, without any pressure or feeling they are on display, and with no sales people around," said Ellis.
