BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, UK
Adam Thilthorpe speaks regularly at BCS and Industry conferences about the need to have the capability to disrupt yourself, and your organisation, before someone does it to you. Having the ability to do todays stuff well, good practice, is vital but not enough on its own. Next practice is doing tomorrow’s stuff first and it is the creative and disruptive force of technology that the IT profession must harness. Adam raises awareness of the changes and challenges in the IT profession and how we must seek to understand and address the current issues around capability and talent. He engages with companies and organisations that employ IT practitioners and helps them to understand that we are all in the technology business.
Adam gained his early experience in the City of London with financial institutions JP Morgan Chase and Georgeson Shareholder before building relationships on behalf of BCS with strategically significant organisations.
