Chairing an IBM discussion

I chaired a very interesting debate yesterday, hosted by IBM. It was a CIO panel discussion featuring the futurist Peter Cochrane, Simon Post, CTO of Carphone Warehouse, Peter Morris, BCP Head of Debenhams, and David Henderson, Technology strategy partner of IBM global business services.

It was at the One Aldwych club, a venue I had always thought of as just a restaurant and bar. But, I went downstairs and they have a screening room for movies or presentations – and a beautiful pool and health club. It’s a really nice venue.

The session went well. There were quite a few journalists in the audience and the discussion went very quickly. I suppose the only thing I came away thinking was that we should have focused the talk a bit more. There was so much to discuss that we could have spent the entire time just on one topic alone… next time maybe!
