Citrix Summit 2017
It was great to be invited back to present two session on Digital Transformation at Citrix Summit 2017 in Anaheim (positive audience feedback from 2016 presentations really does work).
- Adapt or loose – the opportunity ahead (presentation available here)
- Turn disruption to your advantage – the wheel of wisdom (presentation available here)
Technology makes capturing & publishing customer stories in real time relatively easy. However the real skill is helping the customer to tell their story in 30-60 seconds. Here is one example of work we have done for our friends at Sinefa. Work for them from other events can be found here.
MC at #CloudSec Australia
It’s great delivering keynotes, however being the MC at an event whilst providing different challenges, is equally exciting. I was privileged to be offered the opportunity to act at MC at the recent #CloudSec event in Sydney.
I worked with rhipe to create a series of short videos providing insights into the business transformation challenges that the cloud is creating. The following is one from the playlist that can be found here
In Dec 2014, I was invited to present over 2 days at the IDC Channel Leadership Council in San Mateo, California. I shared research I had carried out on what was blocking cloud adoption in the channel (spoiler alert – the vendors own processes!!)
An interview with Warren Nolan, Chief Commercial Officer at rhipe, during recent conference. With the hectic surroundings it was all about creating a relaxed style to allow the ideas to flow.
Smart Questions Books
As a way to capture the ideas and lesson learnt from the past few years,I have written a number of books. The standardised Smart Questions structure allows this to be done in a concise manner without having to worry about the normal look and feel issues.
I was asked to be the external keynote for rhipe’s Cloud Summit series across ANZ. This involved a research program to gather content, creating the presentations and delivering the keynote. A copy of the Powerpoint can be found here
Whilst at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2015 I recorded this video on business model transformation with Jen Sieger, Partner Profitability Lead, Microsoft.
IDC Associate Researcher
An example of providing the lead off presentation at a service providers “to customer” event. I set the industry scene to provide context for the services providers presentations.
