Synopsis:

This will be a great opportunity to discuss and develop ways to handle the fusion and confusion of the blurring of personal and business technology and data.

Whether you want to understand how personal devices, such as smart phones, can be used, securely, to handle business data, or how social networking can be used to carry out business functions, or you have a view on what comes next, this hour of fast‐paced whiteboard discussions with a mix of business and technology leaders is sure to generate insight and ideas.

The evening will start with a buffet and open networking before the unconference begins. After an introduction and explanation of the format it will be your chance to pick the topic that you want to join - or maybe start one of your own! You can move between topics, contributing knowledge, asking questions - or just listening.

At the end, the topic facilitators will each be asked to summarise their discussion, conclusions and insights - quite a challenge. The evening finishes with more open networking.
