In collaboration with the Marketors and the Information Technologists, we are pleased to announce our next DMG Roundtable that features an incredible lineup of speakers:

Setting the scene will be futurologist Richard Watson who will provide us with his thoughts and predictions for the future.  Filling the gaps, as well as providing real life examples of current and near-future technologies, will be Alan Hunter from The Times, Omaid Hiwazi from and Dr Alan McClelland from CPI-UK. The evening will be moderated by Jim Surguy, Past Master of the Marketors’ Company.
