Agenda Topics

The 2020 conference tackled individual customer challenges with a tailored content agenda focused on business resilience. 

Theatre 1: Workforce Agility

In recent years there has been much discussion around the impact technology will have on the future of work, and yet, no one could have predicted the significant events of 2020. What began as a few weeks of working from home has quickly evolved into a catalyst for change regarding how businesses communicate, collaborate and network.

As we continue to navigate the changing business landscape, employers must adapt and pivot their stance to more flexible ways of working, ensuring at all times, their workforce remains secure, agile and productive.





Theatre 3: Bleeding Edge

We explore the technology at the forefront of changing practices and culture and look at the early adopters to see what material benefits these technologies are providing. Our speakers look at networks of new and combined IOT device networks and mixed reality platforms and solutions to see what we can learn about our businesses and workforce, and how this information can provide productivity gains. With new networks and devices come security vulnerability; we also examine how to re-establish your security perimeter and mitigate bleeding edge security concerns.

Theatre 2: Cost Optimisation

Recent events in 2020 have produced a unique set of circumstances for organisations of all sizes, across the globe. Key to this being the investments they make now, that will influence the future of their business.

Security and data compliance breaches can impact the ability for organisations to improve their cashflow and reputational position whilst also hindering their capacity to fund strategic IT projects.

As we continue to navigate this complex situation, senior leaders are exploring new and more flexible approaches to manage and optimise their costs, and ensure their business is fit to survive and thrive in the new normal.


Theatre 4: Public Sector

As a Trusted Technology Advisor, we help Central Government, Local Government, Healthcare, Education and Police organisations minimise risk and maximise quality of service, whilst delivering significant savings. If you want to improve collaboration, mobility, productivity and security, Insight’s Public Sector Team can provide a solution for you.
