Description

Please join us on February 6th 2018 at Winks Eatery for the London Bridge Network’s first meeting of the new year. Our topic for the evening will be; The Internet of Things. We all know the term and many are using IoT in their daily lives but how it affects us and where it’s going in the future will be discussed with our presenter for the evening, Mike Tidy.

Mike is a change agent who most recently led the Industrial Internet of Things Division at ZTR Controls delivering an order of magnitude increase in revenues and being named as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies. His specialties include developing business and technology strategies then applying them with a maniacal focus on innovation, results and stakeholder engagement.

Mike has an MBA from the Rotman School of Management and a degree in Engineering from the University of Toronto. He has had leadership roles with large companies (TELUS, IBM and Bell Canada) and with smaller tech companies (IMS and ZTR). He also spent a few years leading fundraising for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario improving the lives of people in our province.

This thought from Mike:

“IoT or the Internet of Things is a huge topic of conversation on both the business and the technology sides of most companies. The basis of the excitement is the promise of access to more elements of the "connected world", more data to analyze, and the potential to drive better business decisions which may result in new outcomes. Many companies have found that their traditional lines of business are tapped out and that new growth areas are hard to come by. It is also difficult to integrate new business ideas with their existing lines of business. The IoT is a possible solution to these needs and challenges.

During the evening we will explore the scope of what IoT promises; from consumer and customer benefits, to data strategies and business outcomes. The challenges and drivers of IoT will also be an area of conversation as well as strategies that businesses may want to focus on to drive change into their traditional businesses. IoT starts with business drivers but quickly becomes a technology discussion and we will touch on some of these areas as well.”

So once again, join us for the best in London networking at Winks Eatery.

Tuesday February 6th at 5:00PM. Bring a friend!

As always, tasty snacks will be provided and your favourite beverages are available.
