Digital Transformation Live - Toronto 2017 Conference

As discussed, I`ve scheduled this meeting so my colleague Sampson (VP Finance) and I
can provide you with an overview of the first ConverseLink Digital Transformation annual conference to be held around Sep 2017 (happy to move the meeting to a more convenient time or venue in the area Markham if required).

The event will feature panel discussions, keynote speakers and technology workshop tracks under the digital transformation theme - I`ll provide more info on the conference structure before Thursday.

To ensure we maximize your time, we`d also like to explore the roles Bell might be interested in playing beyond possible sponsorship (e.g. partnership, engaging SME customers, keynote speaker spots etc.), and what ConverseLink can do to make this a value-added event for Canada’s leading communications company.

Here`s a sample of the exciting Instructor workshop tracks we are currently considering for participation in the event:

1. Technology project management in the era of disruption
2. Data Mining: using AI and predictive analytics to drive revenues consistently
3. MATLAB for the new generation of big data scientists
4. ARTS: Retail architecture patterns for the future of retail
5. Project delivery and innovation through practical Agile
6. Technology Domain Tracks:
- Networking
