Regina Moran, Head of Business Application Services for Fujitsu EMEIA has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the 2016 Women in Business Conference.
‘The Future of Business’ is the theme of the 8th annual Conference, hosted by TV broadcaster and journalist Claire McCollum on 22 September at the Ramada Plaza, Belfast.
The world of work has undergone immense change in the last fifty years and as technological innovation continues apace it has become necessary to rethink the rules that govern labour markets and workplace skills.
Roseann Kelly, Chief Executive of Women in Business says; “Our Conference will explore technological and sociological trends and how they are reshaping the future of work.
“Regina is an inspirational role model and we look forward with anticipation to her sharing her views and getting to the core of the issues at hand.”
Ms Moran is a member of the Ibec board, Dublin City University governing authority, and government-industry led Smart Futures Advisory Board.
She was awarded the Person of the Year award at the 2014 Tech Excellence Awards and recently placed 34th in the 50 most influential women in UK IT 2016.
