Winners and Testimonials 2018

It is an absolute honour to win The Information Age 2018 Future Tech Leader Award. It has made such a big difference to my career, especially as I have recently joined Xaxis (part of WPP). Being recognised amoungst tech’s brightest talent from across multiple industries is a huge boost to my career and further raises the profile of my team’s work. 

The entire experience from submission to the awards night itself was absolutely fantastic. I had the opportunity to network and meet some great people. 

I would absolutely recommend anyone who is considering it to enter a Tech Leader Award. I truly know first hand the impact this can make to a career and what it does to spotlight some of the fantastic people working across the tech sector.

Winner - Future Leader of the Year

Truly humbled and honoured to be named ‘AI Leader of the Year’ for the work we did with the top 30 mobile operators and the ecosystem to help define the AI industry strategy whilst at the GSMA. Our future is a brand new world. AI will have a profound effect on society, being the main growth driver across geographies whilst exacerbating wealth inequalities across countries, companies & people. To survive WE WILL ALL need to ‘jump to where the ball is going to be, not where it has been’ and do this responsibly. What is your personal AI strategy? Dream Big and never give up!!

Winner - AI Leader of the Year

The Tech Leaders awards brought a new level of prestige to the IT industry and it’s thought leaders in the UK. Winning the Cloud Leader of the year award validates the efforts I, and others, have done to develop and advocate for Cloud Computing in the UK. It also allowed me to create new meaningful relationships with thought leaders in several industries.
