E-Exporting: Take your business to the world - Ian Harrison

Regional Director UK Trade and Investment

The Internet of Things - Microsoft

The Internet of Things (IoT) could generate £1.47 trillion in value by 2025.

How much do you know about the Internet of Things?  What is it and why should you care? The buzz around deploying advances in embedded sensors, processing, data analytics and wireless connectivity to enable the type of machine-to-machine communication that can revolutionise businesses has definitiely become a roar.

In this highly charged presentation Microsoft will be explaining how we can benefit from collecting, analysing and capitalising on vast streams of data from customers, suppliers and even products themselves.

What's New in Social - Liam Lally

As social networking integrates more into business marketing strategies, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up-to-date with new technologies, ideas and innovations across the social platforms. Designed to cut through the hype, this presentation will cover the very latest news and developments that really matter. Liam will be bringing us fully up-to-date on everything from Pinterest’s Buyable Pins, Facebook's video developments, to explaining how telling your brand story is now easier than ever on Snapchat.
