Cloud Partner on board for Wakefield Business Week

Published 22nd Apr 2014 by Events

​IT solutions organisation Servatech are the latest on board to support the Wakefield Business Conference, part of Wakefield Business Week. Joining the event as a key partner, Servatech accompany several sponsors including principal partners Chadwick Lawrence and Wakefield First.

Monday 2nd June sees the start of the second Wakefield Business Week with the established and successful Wakefield Business Conference at the centrepiece on Wednesday 4th June at Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield.

Servatech will be running a clinic at the Conference on the cloud. Steve Spence, co-founder of Servatech explained: ‘The Revolution in Cloud Computing’ is one not to be missed. The clinic provides the insight, understanding and market overview required for businesses to understand what, if any, type of Cloud IT service could be right for them.

Steve continued: “The IT world has changed. Every time we talk to customers nowadays, a “cloud” service forms part of the discussion. People are moving their servers to the cloud, and why wouldn’t they? Cloud is a game changer; it’s faster, more secure and you only pay for what you use.

Whether companies are ‘all-in’ or selectively utilise the Cloud, business owners, IT managers and FD’s should understand what Cloud Computing is, and what different service providers can bring to the party”

Martyn Dawes, Coffee Nation/Costa Express giant and John Bird, founder of The Big Issue will take to the main stage to share their journey to business success. The conference also includes a ‘State of the District’ panel chaired by Helen Oldham, Managing Director of Johnston Press. There will also be a session featuring four local businesses presenting ’20 slides in 20 seconds’ of social media.

Throughout the business week from 2nd to 6th June there will be more than 30 seminars hosted by experts across the district. The business week will also incorporate “Meet the Leader” events, presenting a rare opportunity to get behind the scenes of the most prominent organisations in the district; Coca ColaThe National Coal Mining Museum and The Ridings shopping centre to name just a few.

The Wakefield Business Week website is also now live, packed with events, speakers, key visit information and the starring event, Wakefield Business Conference follow updates with @MYBizConfs on Twitter.
