2021 is here and what better way to start this new year than submitting your session to speak at one (or more) or our world-renowned ITAM Review Wisdom events?!
We’ve confirmed the dates and formats for all 3 of our 2021 Wisdom conferences and they are:

North America – June 9-10 (Online)
EMEA – September 28-29 (Hybrid)
APAC – November 24-25 (Online)

Event Format

Both the North America and APAC events will, once again, be virtual events…however, we’re planning Wisdom EMEA as a hybrid event – meaning we’ll be delivering sessions online and also in-person! Of course, this will depend on the COVID-19 situation, and UK laws, but we’re hopeful that – by September 2021 – we’ll be able to have an in-person event of some kind!

What are we looking for?

The primary aims of our Wisdom events include helping ITAM professionals:

  • understand the latest ITAM trends and changes
  • acquire new knowledge to improve their day-to-day job
  • increase their ITAM maturity levels
  • further the business value, and impact, of ITAM

and to do this, we’re looking for sessions that cover a wide range of topics including – but by no means limited to – the following:

  • Microsoft licensing
  • Oracle licensing
  • IBM licensing
  • SAP licensing
  • Audit Defence
  • On prem/cloud cost reduction
  • Cloud cost management (IaaS & SaaS)
  • SAM Tool selection
  • Vendor negotiation tips and strategies
  • HAM & ITAD processes and best practices
  • Open-Source software

We’re also looking for content and sessions from stakeholders who work with ITAM including:

  • Procurement
  • Finance
  • Security
  • FinOps

Who are we looking you


Yep, that’s right – you. If you’re working as a SAM/ITAM/licensing professional, or you interact with ITAM, and have got something you’d like to share – get in touch through the forms below. If you’re new to public speaking, that’s no problem – we’re more than happy to offer tips and to help you prepare and practice beforehand 😊 We’ve had quite a few first-time speakers and past conferences and they have all thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Speaking at our Wisdom conferences is a great way to boost your profile, give back to the industry, help others elevate their practice, and generally have a awesome time!
