SYNOPSIS
Many technology projects do not fail because of the technology.
They fail due to the people and expectations of them.
We will look at how we can make a difference as leaders in introducing change into the business within technology.

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY
‘My career began with what felt like a backwards step to the help desk but it’s where I learned that technology can be a game changer for a business.’

Technology wasn’t Jo’s first career choice. Instead she was on track to be a professional tennis player until injury forced her to put her sporting ambitions to one side and she took a role on an IT help desk. It was there she learned her trade and realised she wanted to be part of fixing the bigger problem, progressing into service management strategy roles at Diageo, Accenture and Yahoo.

With a demonstrable record of driving successful global technology transformations, Jo went on to hold senior positions including Head of Global Service Management at Betfair and the BBC where she helped to build a world-class centralised operations team.


Jo went onto senior leadership roles as SVP Global Technology Services group and then CTO at Wood Mackenzie, Senior director of engineering at Skyscanner and is now CIO at The Hut group.
