We have also explored options to increase our presence and hope to act on some of those in the coming year. In 2011 the committee worked together to create a 3 year strategy for our section centred around an informal lecture series: –2012/2013 Financial Services & IT –2013/2014 Healthcare & IT –2014/2015 Manufacturing & IT This year has seen 5 very successful and enjoyable talks on themes ranging from data security to speculation on what the future will bring. Great attendance with momentum building following each lecture. Attendance for each lecture (1-5) Attendees / BCS members: - Lecture 1 (26/11), L2 (24/21), L3 (28/10), L4 (32/12) & Lecture 5 (42/11) Lecture series attracting well respected speakers such as Prof. Wesley. Looking forward to the coming year and the new lecture series.
