Dear all,

As promised in our last post, we come back today to introduce the last two speakers who will be delivering a presentation on our big event on Wednesday: Stuart McRae and Paul Brennan. You will find here some brief information on their backgrounds, and the topic of their talks.


Stuart is an Executive Collaboration, Talent & Social Business Evangelist for IBM, where he helps business executives and strategists with their organisation's digital strategy and the effectiveness of their workforce.

He has spent his career helping organisations apply emerging technologies to improve employee collaboration, and his current focus is on how digital transformation is going to change the way people work. Stuart will use his expertise on the transformation of communications within organisations to give us more insight about this particular topic.
