  • UKtech50: John Seglias, Stop worrying – and love consumer products!

John Seglias was one of those CIOs—but he has “seen the light.” In this presentation, Seglias re-emerges as an advocate for consumer devices as the IT department’s allies in the move towards a brighter future where network infrastructures are thrown in the skip, LAN security is forgotten and organisations embrace the “noffice”.

Mike’s talk will focus on how he repositioned the team as central to the successful delivery of his firm’s strategy through the execution of a set of simple, but game-changing ideas.
