Making digital personal: How businesses can use innovation to enhance customer relationships

Paul Anslow, CEO – Triangle Networks

The post-COVID world has forced us all to embrace digital technologies more than ever before, but not without fear for many small business owners. Since 2020, businesses have been navigating a complex world of technology choices whilst doing what they can to retain their customer relationships. In a ‘people buy from people’ business world, how does technology enhance or diminish a business’ ability to differentiate?

Triangle works in partnership with network operators, local IT professionals, developers and landlords to bring full-fibre gigabit connectivity to businesses across the UK. Last year they also launched Fibrehop, a new full-fibre consumer ISP, to homes across Milton Keynes. Triangle are well-known evangelists for the full-fibre revolution, working with network builder CityFibre since 2016.

Digital Transformation: Avoiding the Pitfalls and Ensuring Success

Kiron Bose: Chief Operating Officer, Issured Limited

With a degree in aeronautical engineering, Kiron spent his early career designing and developing complex aircraft systems for BAE SYSTEMS (BAES) including avionic and weapon systems for both the Typhoon and Lightning (F35) fighter aircraft. During his time at BAES, Kiron moved into the design of future command, control and intelligence systems working with the operational business to understand their needs and translating these into technical designs.

Kiron then moved to PA Consulting working across a number of Digital Transformation projects for a variety of clients, eventually becoming an independent consultant to UK Counter Terrorism Policing where he led the business transformation of how they source, manage and share intelligence. From this, Issured was born where Kiron is the COO and has led a range of Digital Transformation programmes with UK Law Enforcement, NHS, UK Fire and Rescue Services and a range of private sector clients.

Jed Stone – Chief Product Officer, Issured Ltd

The impact of Digital Marketing to inform future Product Design

Yaseen Akhtar, Director of Curriculum – South Central Institute of Technology (SCIoT)

The ground-breaking £20M development in Bletchley will enable opportunities for the local community to access an inspirational learning environment with innovative and creative pathways to enhance their careers. Although the significant investment in a physical build will support regional aspiration, the impact of lockdown has forced the educational sector to react with innovate methods of delivery to engage with clients.

Yaseen has published research focussing on the development needs of employers and will share the recent experience of successfully delivering a large project through the support of digital marketing. This will include the challenging demands of customer satisfaction in a post-COVID world when designing new products for delivery.
