One week out from Empired Convergence, Perth and Brisbane: what to expect… and five reasons why you need to be there!

If you haven’t yet registered your place for Empired Convergence there’s still time (just!). 

We’re just a week out from the first event, to be held on Wednesday 11 th October at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, closely followed by our Brisbane event on Friday 13 October, held at Microsoft’s offices.

Then there’s Adelaide Convergence, to be held on Tuesday 17th October at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Then Sydney Convergence, to be held on Tuesday 24th October at Sheraton on the Park.

And, last but certainly not least, Melbourne Convergence on Thursday 26th October at CQ Functions.

Empired Convergence

Five reasons why you shouldn’t miss Convergence

In a nutshell…

  1. Digital transformation demystified. What are Australian organisations really doing? How does it break down? What does it look like in real terms?
  2. Inspiration. Time out from the doing toreflect and think.
  3. Conversations and stories. Less of the abstract, more of the real life. Honest Q&A with, and thought leadership from, digital transformation protagonists (aka the people on the journey right now, living the ‘dream’ – or… at least alive and kicking enough to join us to tell their story).
  4. Practical advice on chunking it down and making it real. Assurance that – although it may look daunting at the outset – digital transformation is infinitely doable. Plus tips, tricks and practical takeaways. (Because, let’s admit it… sometimes the pressure to digitally transform feels like needing to know how to boil the ocean, put a definite measurement on a very unruly looking piece of string, or find a needle in an incredibly data-rich, internet-sized haystack... pick your cliché of choice.)
  5. Networking. Meet people just like you, looking to do awesome stuff, with technology as an enabler.

(And, 6, a bonus reason, for good measure. It’s free!)

What to expect on the day

  • Why digital transformation? What is it? Why should we care? And what should we be doing about it?
  • The Microsoft vision and future. All roads lead to convergence. Hear from Microsoft executives across the country about what the future holds. (And… “The future is already here; it’s just not evenly distributed.” – William Gibson)
  • Digital transformation in action. An interactive warts and all conversation with local digital transformers. What made them take the leap? How did they do it? And what have been their biggest learnings so far?
  • How to transform right across your enterprise. Three strategies you can use today to drive a successful transformation programme in your business.
  • How to unleash the power of the platform. How to dream big, start small and deliver fast – making IT easy through the power of the platform.
  • Customer experience. The key to it all and your ultimate differentiator. How do we up our game for mutual benefit (happy, dedicated customers, happy CFO)?
  • How to keep pace and stay safe in a cloud world. We’re faced with boundless opportunity, but on the flipside are ever-increasing risk and security considerations. And it goes without saying that speed is the new norm. How do we keep pace with this rate of change and pick the right cloud platforms that will see us excel?
  • Data as your most strategic asset. How to use your data to understand your customers, drive intimacy, improve retention and promote advocacy.
  • Embracing a modern digital workplace. From portal to chatbot, what does a modern digital workplace look like? And how do we achieve the dream of collaboration, productivity and seamless user experience?

We look forward to seeing you there (but you need to register first)!
