Managing Vice President & Conference Chair

"I am thrilled to chair the Gartner Catalyst London conference. While I've been a fixture as a speaker at Catalyst San Diego for several years, this is my first time as Conference Chair. I now have the opportunity to bring the best content of the Catalyst season to London. Catalyst is Gartner's premier conference for Technical Professionals - and it is unique in the industry as a vendor-agnostic venue aimed at the implementers of IT strategy.

Featuring almost 50 sessions of content alongside case studies, a great sponsor show floor and ample networking opportunities, Catalyst is the must-attend event for IT professionals interested in setting the pace of Digital Business in their enterprises. I hope you'll join me, and twenty other Gartner for Technical Professionals analysts, as we show you how to Exploit New Architectures and Create Your Digital Future."
