Annual TMT Conference I Thursday 11th October 2018 : 09:30 - 17:00

AI and robotics has moved from concept to reality. It is clear that industry 4.0 seems set to disrupt the business world more heavily than perhaps even anticipated. Our physical and digital worlds continue to collide and converge. Many of the TMT sectors’ customers now consider themselves to be technology customers making the ecosystems in which we trade ever more complex.

As disruptive technology continues to rapidly evolve and impact our businesses and our lives, we will look at the very latest and future legal issues that may affect your business in relation to technology you may be supplying or procuring.

We are proud to announce our guest speaker, Nick Cranfield, Head of Legal Compliance and Ethics at Dyson, who will showcase how compliance can be used as a tool for competitive advantage.
