Yesterday, the Langham Hotel in London played host to the fourth annual UK CIO Summit. Over 100 CIOs attended this year’s premier event, enjoying a range of topics for discussion and debate.

Microsoft was proud to be the sponsor of the Business stream, incorporating an inspiring and thought-provoking presentation by Technology Evangelist, James Whittaker, and a Devices Showcase featuring the latest Surface, Nokia Phones and Windows 8.1.

The event offers a perfect opportunity for networking and engaging with some inspirational key speakers. 24hrs later, we want to share some key moments and reaction from the great presentations and interesting discussions. Did you
attend the event? What was your thought-provoking moment?
