Amidst the hustle of London Tech Week, a panel of global tech experts joined Vonage and Michael Hayman today for an intimate breakfast discussion exploring the future of communication in the tech industry.
Held at Vonage’s UK headquarters, the audience heard from an impressive line-up of speakers that included David Cameron’s former adviser on enterprise, Lord Young of Graffham.
Up first was Siemens’ Director of Urban Development Julie Alexander, who spoke about her experience building smart cities across the globe – and warned London that other UK cities are hot on its heels when it comes to urban technology.
Michael welcomed four highly esteemed technologists to the following panel: James Ski Founder at Sales Confidence, Dr Ishani Patel Co-Founder at Lantum, Luba Reynolds Managing Director at Sales Expand and David Vigar Director at Nexmo.
One of the highlights of the event was undoubtedly Lord Young of Graffham’s looking back on his 70-year career and who ended his keynote on a positive note, “Some people may be glass half empty, some half full. My glass on the other hand, is overflowing with optimism for the tech industry”.
Gaining great social media coverage, one of our guests on twitter commented:
