28-Jun-12 Sporting Shocks and Consumerisation

In Blog, Consumerisation, Euro 2012, Technology on June 28, 2012 at 7:54 pm

A late blog this evening, as I have spent most of today with our Global Learning and Development team at their headquarters in the West End.

Although I don’t believe any of them to be regular blog readers of mine, I have to extend my thanks for them making me very welcome today and I certainly got a lot out of the event.

About a week or so ago, I was asked to provide them a technology briefing, as part of their annual function get together. In addition to this, me and one of my team, Paul Chandler, got involved in a Question and Answer type session this afternoon, which really benefited both parties.

My technology briefing focused on consumerisation and how this might enable our Learning and Development function to deliver effective training in the future. Without going in to too much detail, it covered the products (Good and Citrix Receiver) that are live products that we deliver today, as well as some additional features around embracing wireless technology in conjunction with our Audio Visual suite of products.

The obligatory pint or two was shared after the event, hence the late composition of my blog.

As I write, I have just witnessed the biggest shock of Euro 2012 with Italy beating Germany 2-0 and the biggest shock of Wimbledon with Nadal being beaten in the second round by Lukas Rosol, who is ranked 100!

The football result was not as big a shock for me, as I predicted Italy to win 2-0! Damn it, I was only 2 minutes away from getting 10 points in http://www.footballpredictiongame.co.uk!
