5 things to expect from Talking Tech!

At the time of writing this we have less than 50 days to go until our third Talking Tech event in under a year and we’re busy finalising our speakers and panelists. If you’re not familiar with the event, then let us quickly introduce it to you.

Talking Tech is an event organised by us, Custodian, to give senior IT professionals in the South East a forum for peer-to-peer discussion in a totally sales-free environment. Our first two events saw excellent attendence and industry-leading speakers discuss hot tech topics like GDPR and finding talent in IT. We lay on the event exclusively for IT folk, for free, with breakfast and roundtable discussion. Held at the Maidstone Studios, our data centre’s home; it truly is a one-of-a-kind IT event in the area. Here’s five things you can expect to get out of it:

Enjoy meeting a number of people in similar roles

Our attendees range from a variety of senior IT positions. These range from IT managers to senior cloud architects to CIOs. We have no doubt that you’ll have given and received useful information from your industry peers!

Seen your IT setup from a different perspective

Being in a roomful of your peers and industry leaders, Talking Tech covers topics that we hope you’ll gather real takeaways from. What’s more, our event runs from 8.30am to midday, giving you the time to head back and share new knowledge with the office.

Been pleasently surprised not to have been sold to

Our ethos from the start has been that of making sure that no one is pushing their services. Even the speakers. This isn’t an event where you’ll get vendors selling you a product. It’s genuine information gathering. We’re very careful about who we let in. So if you have a sales agenda, don’t even bother!

Become part of an IT community steering future events

This isn’t so much an event that you’ll be attending. It’s one we hope you participate in. We put on panel discussions so you get your say; not just a Q&A, a proper discussion. That’s what Talking Tech is about. After the event, a closed group is available on LinkedIn for participants to steer topics for the next event.

Got it all for free (including an awesome breakfast!)

Our events are free. And they say there is no such thing as a free lunch, and they may be right! However, we do lay on free breakfast and refreshments throughout.
