Wisdom Online: APAC 2020 – call for speakers

Wisdom Online is coming to the APAC region, November 24-25, 2020.

Wisdom Online APAC

Although, for this year at least, we can’t make our annual trip across the globe to Australia – through the power of modern technology, we CAN still deliver great content to all our awesome Australian & New Zealand audience. Not only that, delivering our conference online means we can broaden the reach of Wisdom to the whole of the APAC region! Sessions will be run in the AEST time zone too 😁

If you’ve got a great story, we – and all our delegates – want to hear it!

ITAM is a wide-ranging industry and we welcome session submission on any aspect you think will be interesting and useful. We want to have a great mix of content, both in terms of content and “difficulty” – we’re looking for content that will help those at the start of their ITAM career but also content that will help experienced ITAM practitioners take it to the next level and/or add a new string to their bow.

Suggested topics, based on feedback, include:

  • Managing audits
  • Engaging with stakeholders
  • Building an ITAM team
  • Cloud cost management for IaaS and/or SaaS
  • Open Source licensing & management
  • Creating and managing a CMDB
  • Hardware Asset Management (HAM)
  • IT Asset Disposal (ITAD)
  • Security & ITAM
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Creating dashboards and reports
  • Legal & contract management
  • SAP / Oracle / IBM

But there are plenty of things we’ve not covered there, so don’t let that limit you…we have always got a place for great insight! We want to hear about things like what’s important to you, what has helped you make progress – be it on a specific project or overall in your career, and what skills are key to your role.

Think back over your career – what do you wish you knew before embarking on certain projects? If you’re new to the industry, what tips can you share with others looking to get involved? Come along, speak, and share your knowledge to help make things slightly smoother for others!

New to speaking?

If you’re tempted by the idea of speaking – but it’s not something you’re quite sure about…get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to help. We can run you through what’s involved in terms of prep as well as on the day, and we can help with slide design, content creation, tips on public speaking, and other areas too.

As scary as public speaking can be – especially at first – it’s even more fun once you get going and can open up so many opportunities! We like for each of our conferences to launch at least one new speaker – so why not you? 😁
