2015 Presentations Review

2015 was a busy year!

At last count, I did more than 55 presentations at over 40 events in 22 cities and 16 different countries. If you were able to attend one of them, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did — and I give my heartfelt thanks to everybody who did the hard work behind the scenes to ensure the conferences went smoothly.

Here’s a selection of some of the presentations I did during the course of the year, with links to the slides and/or recordings. They are generally around four big themes:

  • Digital Transformation
  • Analytics and Big Data
  • Internet of Things
  • Digital Marketing & Evangelism

Other topics included Digital Futures, Digital Collaboration, and Technology Trends for CFOs.

I strive to localize every presentation to different locations and audiences (CIOs, CFOs, IT etc.)  and add new material as it becomes available, but there is naturally a fair amount of overlap on the various presentations on similar topics.

Need a speaker for an event in 2016? Check out the videos towards the end of the post for recent keynotes and drop me a line via twitter: @timoelliott

I look forward to seeing you at a conference sometime soon!
