Bigger, Better, Faster:

How technology can revolutionise your business

TUESDAY 11th JUNE 2019

MORNING EVENT 10:00-12:45


The UK’s first ever UHY digital and AI focused event.

The event offers insights into the rapid pace of change in technology over the last 10 years and explores how AI can solve problems and transform the way businesses operate.

No business is too big to fall and those that don’t keep up with the pace of change in tech fail. Nothing stays the same forever and the best companies are those which are flexible and innovative enough to adapt.

This event will bring together the best business minds who will share guidance on why businesses need to be more vigilant than ever in remaining innovative to future-proof their businesses.

Guests will have the chance to hear from industry thought-leaders, motivational speakers and industry-leading technology providers on how technology is paving the way for a brighter future.

Over 15 selected exhibitors from software and app providers will offer their expert guidance and offer guests the chance to discuss 1-on-1 how the latest technology could transform their business.

The day will be packed full of presentations, panel discussions and business and networking opportunities.

“Moving to Xero from Sage has transformed the way I manage my accounts. The biggest benefit has been it’s given me my weekends back, I’ve saved hours processing information, and am now on top of my accounts as it’s so easy to maintain daily. I can invoice clients while on site, which has seen an improvement in cashflow and reduces the stress of managing and chasing payments. The support from the UHY team has been great, the training session made a huge difference and you can really tell they are passionate about helping business owners succeed.”
