World-leading experts poised to open Tech Show London

With just one month to go until the event’s launch, an exciting line-up of pioneering business and technology leaders has been announced for this year’s Tech Show London Mainstage Theatre.

Taking place on the 8th and 9th of March at ExCel London, the award-winning Tech Show London event boasts five free-to-attend events, including Data Centre World, Big Data and AI World, Cloud and Cyber Security Expo, DevOps Live, and Cloud Expo Europe.

A keynote discussing being an empowering leader in the face of global change featuring the insights and expertise of former Director General of MI5, Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, and Starling Bank’s CEO, Anne Boden, will kickstart the event.

Back in 2020, Forbes listed Manningham-Buller as one of the World’s Most Powerful Women after she admirably navigated the British security service’s changing recruitment and financial responsibilities against the backdrop of ever-growing dangers of extremism and complex cyberthreats.

Boden on the other hand, recently made headlines after she led her bank to an expected quadrupling of profits between 2022 and 2023, explaining that “it’s no accident that we have never sought a silly valuation, even when the prospect of one was dangled before us”.

The event is organised by CloserStill Media – the company’s Conference Manager, Renuka Jhalli, said: “There is no better way to mark International Women’s Day on 8th March than opening Tech Show London with two incredibly successful and powerful women.”

The Mainstage Theatre’s programme has a myriad of influential speakers from all walks of life, who will explore topics ranging from technology skills shortages and workforce diversity, all the way to effective leadership, futurism, and sustainability.

Attendees can expect to be treated to the thoughts of the BBC’s Technology Editor, Zoe Kleinman; Sky’s Group CTO, Prasana Gopalaskrishnan; the Cabinet Office’s CDIO, Mike Hill; NASA’s Deputy Centre Director, Dr Christyl Johnson; and one of the internet’s key progenitors, Radia Perlman.

“Thousands of industry leaders come to UK’s most important technology event for businesses because there are boundless opportunities to learn, network, and shape their digital future,” added Renuka.

National Health Executive and Public Sector Executive will also host a Community and Knowledge Hub session on the first day of the event, between 13:45 and 14:45. Given our status as media partners, qualifying NHE and PSE subscribers from the NHS and public sector delegates can register for a FREE VIP ticket here.
