BRISBANE, Queensland - MITIGATE 2012, Australia's premier IT risk seminar, today added Jack Phillips to the list of speakers that will tour Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth from late August through early September 2012.
MITIGATE Seminar Director Avi Lewin, "Australian organisations need to realise a better return on their technology investments."
"Having Jack Phillips as the MITIGATE 2012 speaker for ROI is a big win for Australia. We are a nation of innovators and early adopters, but we still have significant IT project failures just like everyone else. We need to stop treating technology as if it were magic and start showing how it is delivering measurable business outcomes." said Lewin.
"Every Australian organisation that spends money on technology will benefit by having their staff attend MITIGATE. Jack will be explaining his proven techniques for technology project success using the ROI Methodology."
Jack Phillips is a globally recognised expert on accountability, measurement, and evaluation. He is the co-founder of the ROI Institute and creator of the ROI Methodology - a revolutionary process that provides bottom-line figures and accountability for all types of learning, performance improvement, human resource, technology, and public policy programs. The author and/or editor of more than 100 books, Jack now spends the majority of his time consulting to Fortune 500 companies and major global organisations, and conducting workshops and presenting at conferences all over the world.
"Australian organisations spent over $60 billion on Information Technology in 2011, and all the while budgets and timeframes of IT projects continue to spiral out of control. I'm very excited to be presenting at MITIGATE 2012 to help people understand how to align their IT solutions more closely to the needs of the business and how they can measure Return on Investment for their technology spend." said Phillips.
Jack joins three other previously announced speakers on the tour - Jonathan E. Turner, Daniel Burrus and Kevin Mitnick.
Turner is a leading authority on fraud and money laundering. By speaking at MITIGATE he will help Australian organisations to spot the warning signs of fraudulent behaviour.
Burrus is one of the world's top technology forecasters. He will be helping Australian organisations through MITIGATE by showing them how to turn rapid technology-driven change into a competitive advantage.
Mitnick is the world's most famous (former) hacker, and will share his expertise with Australian organisations through MITIGATE to help them reduce their risk of compromise by cybercriminals.
