  • Brief introduction to who we are, why we’re here and the objectives / outline of this session.
  • Slide from Sue O – adapted If you look at the shaded band – this represents the area where most IT personnel are at the peak of their career in IT in the North East. If you look at organisations, throughout the UK , you see that it is rare to find an IT director on the board of major plcs. Where IT is represented, it is frequently in combination with another functional area, typically HR or operations of Finance. Because of this, and interestingly, some board level IT directors do not come from technology backgrounds themselves. North East is no different with less than 4% IT directors on the board.
