2014 Harvey Nash Technology Event: WE ARE ALL HACKERS NOW

November 26, 2014

We are delighted to invite you to this year’s 2014 Harvey Nash Technology Event : WE ARE ALL HACKERS NOW

This is one of Harvey Nash’s biggest free events in the calendar and is being held again at the Think Tank inside Birmingham Science Museum, Millennium Point on Wednesday 26th November 2014.

Along with 150 other Technologists from around the Midlands, you can look forward to an evening of networking over drinks, debate, discussion and also being one of the first to hear the headline results from our 2014 Global Technology Survey.  With the raw data of the Survey now being analysed we can say that it has thrown up some interesting and very debatable opinions on everything from:

Which Technology company is the most influential

  • What are the hottest technologies right now
  • What personality traits do the best Technology entrepreneurs hold
  • Which country has the best Technology entrepreneurs
  • Where does the UK list in the world for Innovation
  • What the next big thing is
  • Is there such a thing as Online privacy anymore/ do we want it
  • And of course our full regional and global salary/contractor rate survey

This year’s overarching theme to the event is WE ARE ALL HACKERS NOW.  Quite a statement which throws up negative and positive connotations.  Even a few years ago the term ‘hacking’ was almost exclusively the domain of the sinister, reserved for cyber-criminals and anarchistic groups of online activists who inhabited the dark-net. But today, as a result of technology’s omnipresent influence in almost all aspects of our business and personal lives, ‘hacking’ has come to represent a much more positive and creative culture i.e. growth hacking, life hacks, hackathon, communities of Tech enthusiasts, spirit of playful Technology cleverness….More will be revealed at the event….

We are delighted to announce 3 OUTSTANDING speakers for the event, who will also be part of the Q&A panel at the end and will await your questions:

Ed Tucker – Head of Cyber Security for HM Revenue & Customs (Speaker at InfoSec Europe, European Information Security Summit)

Fred Warren – Microsoft Connected Digital Services, 7 year Microsoft veteran (Senior Architect, Head of Design, Products)

Nick Holzherr – Founder/CEO of Whisk.com (BBC Apprentice Finalist, Entrepreneur, Start Up founder, Tech expert)

We would be grateful if you could confirm you’re attendance to this event ASAP in order for us to save you a place, as we expect a large uptake.
