CEDA is delighted to welcome Conrad Harvey, Group General Manager IT, Coles to address CEDA members and their guests for the second session of the CIO Series for 2011.

Conrad Harvey will examine the transforming role of IT in a large retailer undergoing a turnaround.  In particular he will focus on the transition from Corporate IT to easy IT.

In the CIO series CEDA continues to advance discussion around the integral importance of information and communication technology to organisational performance in our information-based economy. The luncheon series stimulates debate and facilitates knowledge exchange towards a robust community of ICT leadership to drive business forward through innovation and business process improvement.
