Technology and communications provider Daisy Group plc has announced the date and itinerary for the company’s Wired 2014 event. The #DaisyWired14 summit will bring together some of the UK’s best known and most entrepreneurial companies to debate the global impact and influence of technology, using Ubiquity as the theme for the day.
Taking place in Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire on 7th May 2014, #DaisyWired14 will feature some of the most influential and respected names in business and technology including John Cridland, Director General of the CBI; futurologist Tom Cheesewright; Nathan Marke, Chief Technology Officer at Daisy Group and Matthew Riley, CEO of Daisy Group.
Inspired by the topic of Ubiquity, the conference will analyse and debate just how computing is influencing every aspect of our work and personal lives. Today computers rarely leave our sides and maintain a dialogue of data with us, and each other, throughout the day. The speakers and businesses at #DaisyWired14 will explore how tomorrow’s omnipresent technology will have the power to affect the future of British business and how companies need to prepare for and maximise its potential.
Nathan Marke said: “We are undoubtedly entering the age of pervasive computing and technology plays a part in every waking moment of our lives, as individuals, businesses and in our built environment.
“Smartphones do everything from waking us to monitoring our health; our offices are programmed with energy saving software and cloud services are becoming the norm for millions of businesses.
“We can’t predict our future but we are undoubtedly helping to create it and Wired 2014 is our opportunity to engage with businesses to make sure that we are at the forefront and making the very most of the next wave of advances.”
Daisy’s inaugural Wired 2013 event saw more than 100 companies attending the event, with keynote speaker former Conservative MP Steve Norris, and a frank and revealing onstage interview between Daisy Group CEO Matthew Riley and Chairman Peter Dubens.
