The Institute of Directors in Guernsey will use its 2018 mid-term breakfast event next month to look at digital connectivity, a key issue highlighted at the branch’s annual convention last autumn.
Panelists representing the telecommunications sector and States of Guernsey digital initiatives will review how Guernsey is faring in the global digital landscape.
IoD chair Linda Johnson said: “It was clear from our convention last year that digital connectivity holds huge importance for Guernsey and its future prosperity on so many levels. It’s a complicated topic for most of us who are non-technical which means we are putting a huge amount of trust and responsibility in those, both in the private sector and government, who are charged with ensuring Guernsey is in the right place digitally.”
“Our mid-term event will be an opportunity to hear from those at the cutting edge of everything digital and to question them on whether Guernsey’s digital infrastructure is fit for purpose.”
The moderator for the event will be Elaine Gray, a partner at Carey Olsen – who are also the sponsor.
Panelists will be Justin Bellinger, Chief Digital Officer at Sure; Phil Male, a non-executive director of JT; Michael Byrne, Chief Executive of CICRA; States Chief Information Officer Colin Vaudin; Lucy Witham, Head of Digital at the Economic Development department.
The event will take place on Wednesday 14 March at St James with registration from 7.45am and a finish time of 9.45am. Tickets are £15, including refreshments, and can be booked via Eventbrite here.
