Very Successful December CDNC Meeting

Despite the poor weather and busy time of year, last Thursday we held a very successful CDNC event at the Rubicon Centre in CIT.  

We invited Mr Kieran O'Hea to attend the meeting and give a short talk on the benefits of networking for digital businesses. Kieran has just recently returned from Australia where he was Chief Digital Officer for Digital Brisbane, a five-year digital economy strategy for the city. Brisbane is only the 2nd city in the world to appoint a CDO and Kieran successfully led the development, setting up the Brisbane Digital Audit, the Digital Brisbane strategy, engaging with 30,000 SMES, funding 25 start-ups , introducing Coderdojo and establishing the PwC Chair in Digital Economy. Kieran shared his experience with the group, as well as giving some advice for the future progession of the CDNC.  We were delighted he could attend and we are sure he will be a very worthwhile contact for the group and its members.

There were a lot of new developments within the group since our last meeting, with one new member sharing details of his exciting new venture, which aims to create a number of jobs in the creative digital sector.  Members also discussed some future networking opportunities, with two potential events lined up in the new year.  A brief discussion took place on the future direction of the group, with some members committing to taking a more involved role in progressing the network.

All in all, it was a very useful and informative meeting, and some great connections were made.  Hopefully these will be further enhanced through the next networking event in the new year.

Wishing all our members a very happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
