Our end of year Xmas event is the Offis eClub Xmas Party
This year’s theme - Future Shock: Are you the Innovator or the Disrupted?
eClub is one of Sydney's premier IT community events series spanning well over a decade and delivering the latest information, insights and discussions with IT industry professionals. eClub Xmas Party combines Offis communities, SkunkMonk and ISV Speakeasy to deliver a gala end of year business event for all to enjoy.
With all of the current business talk of innovation and disruption, it’s never been more important for businesses to be guided by possible futures instead of a disappearing past. If we are to become the drivers of change instead of the victims, we need to look further ahead than just the ‘top tech trends for 2016’!
Special Guest - Ron Cobb, Hollywood creative legend, has contributed conceptual design thinking to films such as Star Wars, Back to the Future, Alien, Aliens, Close Encounters, The Abyss, Total Recall, True Lies, Firefly and many more. Sometimes it takes a sci-fi mind to reveal where we really are today. The sci-fi world of Back to the Future is now set in our past. The movie made many technology predictions. Some came true, while others were wildly off the mark. (Where’s my flying car?)
After exploring the future with Ron we were engaged in discussion by professionals on the frontline of innovation.
