Due to the uncertainty we face from Covid-19 and making health and safety a priority, we have taken the decision to move our September conference online. We have created two fabulous mornings of discussion.  We will run these meetings in our usual interactive format with a mix of expert presentations, conversations and panels. 

Our online meetings have all demonstrated a highly engaged audience with incredible interaction in the chat forum.  The recording of the discussions and chat log will be available to all our attendees post-event.

Key themes for this event will include:

  • Technology challenges
  • Regulation
  • Privacy
  • Data security
