Saïd Business School is excited to welcome Tim O'Reilly, founder of O'Reilly Media, to speak at the School on Tuesday 24 October.
A rare opportunity to hear the legendary 'oracle' of Silicon Valley, Tim O'Reilly, who will deliver a major talk on his new book, WTF? What's the Future and Why It's Up To Us. O'Reilly was one of the first people to identify the importance of the World Wide Web, open source software, the Major movement and big data, and he coined the term Web 2.0.
To survive the next wave of digital technology, every industry and organisation will have to transform itself in multiple ways. O'Reilly will provide practical business advice on what the 'next economy' will mean for the world and every aspect of our lives – and what we can do to shape it. About the event Please note that due to the high interest in the talk, this event will take place across two rooms, and seating will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis to the main room with O'Reilly. Live-beaming of the talk will be available in the overflow room, where you will still be able to submit questions to the speaker. The seminar is open for anyone to attend and will take place at Saïd Business School followed by a short networking drinks reception.
Please remember that registration is required to attend this event.
