Today we’re delighted to announce the CTSO of one of the world’s leading Internet of Things companies, Cisco’s Padmasree Warrior, is coming to The Summit in Dublin.
This year The Summit will bring 350+ speakers to Dublin, but there’s more. For the first time The Summit will have an Internet of Things Summit. Last week we announced a new Entreprise Summit and in the coming weeks we will be revealing two more new and exciting Summits as part of The Summit 2014 in Dublin. Tim O’Reilly and David Rowan will also be in Dublin to speak at The Summit. With 2 for 1 tickets going on sale this day 2 weeks, and 60,000 already signed up for 2 for 1 discount vouchers, it is really looking like The Summit 2014 is going to be one of the biggest and best of its kind that the world has ever seen.

David Rowan is at the top of his game at the moment. His WiredUK feature on PCH’s Liam Casey this weekend is just a brief taster of the quality of his work. David has also written for GQ Magazine, The Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Times, edited The Guardian’s online content, as well as many TV contributions. David is in touch with many of the world’s leading trend-setters and spotters. In presentations he looks at how the net is disrupting almost every sector, how apps change consumer behaviour and why ‘social commerce’ is killing traditional marketing. He reveals the 10 trends that will change your market in the next decade – and what you should be doing now to protect yourself. Here’s David’s Fireside Chat with Nest’s Tony Fadell from The Summit 2013:
