Seven Hills supported Dell Technologies for the general plenary session of its flagship Forum at Magazine, London on 22 November. Hosted by Michael Hayman and bringing together more than 1000 Dell Technologies team members, partners and customers from across the UK, the day celebrated the convergence of human progress and technological innovation.
Through a series of keynotes, interviews and thought-provoking discussions, the plenary agenda featured a lineup of brilliant speakers, including Dell Technologies’ UK GM Dayne Turbitt, McLaren Racing’s Jess Tomkins, Generations Expert Dr Eliza Filby, Rolls Royce’s Stuart Moss, the Motor Neurone Disease Association’s Nick Goldup, and documentary presenter Louis Theroux.
The afternoon’s opening session saw an executive keynote from Dayne Turbitt, who later sat down with Michael for a conversation exploring the positive impact of technology, its role in improving human performance and Dell’s goal to impact one billion lives globally by 2023.
We then welcomed two trailblazers to the stage: Jess Tomkins, a technical analyst for McLaren Racing leading the charge on data innovation, and generations expert Dr Eliza Filby, who provided fascinating insight into the generational shifts within politics, society and the workplace.
Michael was then joined by Rolls Royce’s Head of IT Innovation Stuart Moss and the MND Association’s Director of Care Improvement Nick Goldup, for a powerful and inspiring illustration of the positive impact of technology. The session looked at how the two organisations have partnered with Dell Technologies and Intel to give voice to those living with Motor Neurone Disease, through the interactive eBook, I Will Always Be Me.
To close the day, Michael welcomed the audience to ‘Louis’ World’, sitting down with acclaimed documentary presenter Louis Theroux to discuss what he’s learned about the human spirit from more than 20 years of storytelling, and the role technology will play in shaping our future.
The Forum plenary was followed by an executive dinner, which saw 80 partners and customers of Dell Technologies gather at the Cinnamon Club in Westminster, where guests heard from CBI Vice-President and Cobra Beer founder Lord Bilimoria CBE.
