Microsoft is providing business leaders and technology experts with the perfect excuse to hobnob with their peers at an event that aims to help solve business problems, inspire, inform and look at some of the latest technology.
Future Decoded will host 10,000 visitors from the UK and Europe on 10 and 11 November at London’s ExCel Centre. If you're a business owner with a head for technology, or in development, IT management, cloud technology and R&D, it could be worth your valuable time.
The event is split into 2 days: Business Day, on the first day, is for business owners and decision-makers from small and big companies. Sessions include inspirational speakers, roundtables, briefings and presentations.
Day 2 is Technology Day, when IT pros and developers gather and talk about the web, cloud technology, programming, the Internet of Things, data, the future of computing and more.
Small businesses get their own dedicated afternoon on Day 1, with breakout sessions offered by experts from Enterprise Nation, British Chambers of Commerce and O2, among other organisations. Major conferences often risk alienating smaller ventures due to high ticket prices, but these sessions are free and will provide practical ideas and tips for building a business.
Speakers across the 2 days include Clare Balding, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Professor Brian Cox, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, and Arsenal FC’s IT Director, Hywel Sloman.
