Unlock the Power of Connectivity - all the highlights from our fantastic event

If you didn’t make it to our event, Unlock the Power of Connectivity, earlier this month, you really missed out on a fantastic day.

We took over the BT Tower in London for a day filled with insight on the future of connectivity and how important it is to your business.

We were joined by speakers from Gartner and BT as well as former UK Deputy National Security Adviser, Paddy McGuinness.


Scott Eivers, Senior Managing Partner at Gartner, gave us an overview of the evolution of SD WAN; what the market looks like right now and how it’s growing, the benefits, and what it can do for your business.

Paddy McGuinness spoke on current cyber vulnerabilities, actors and threats from an organisational view point. It was fascinating to hear about recent cyber attacks, how they effected the companies involved and what we can learn from them. Paddy highlighted the importance of cyber defence over cyber security.

Ian Hawkins, Principal in Network Technology at BT Technology, took a look into the future of networks and what we can expect to see from the market in the coming months and years.

The day was rounded off with a panel discussion including all of our speakers and Mike Kendall, Managing Director of emPSN, who earlier in the day shared his views on securing connections for the public good and what the private sector can learn from the public sector. The panel was grilled by the audience on their views of connectivity and how it can support business growth.

Take a look at our video and photos of the highlights of the day plus the incredible illustration that was created to demonstrate the key themes we saw coming through from the speakers and audience.
