We are delighted to announce our inaugural Personal Information Economy 2014 event – your fast track opportunity to gain insight into what’s happening in the personal information economy. The event takes place on March 20 2014 at Glaziers Hall in Central London and early bird ticket sales are open today.

Why now?

We are moving rapidly into a personal information economy where innovative services increasingly deploy information as a tool in the hands of individuals and where individuals want to exercise control over how their data is collected and used – and to share in the benefits of its use. The personal information economy is changing how individuals do business with each other and with organisations, creating new business opportunities for innovation, customer service and cost reduction. This annual event provides a unique chance for business leaders to seize the initiative, lead the innovation and grasp the competitive edge as the world of data is changing.

It provides the perfect opportunity to meet and learn from the people who are actively shaping and making the personal information economy. Nowhere else will you find such a vibrant concentration of those at the sharp end of transformation, each contributing from their own unique specialist expertise.

At Ctrl-Shift we at the heart of the evolving landscape working on strategic implementation projects helping blue chip brands develop fruitful data sharing relationships with their customers. Our research team constantly monitors the market and are seeing action and change on many fronts which we have recorded in our recently published Personal Information Economy Round-up report. Competitive leadership no longer rests with how good organisations are at collecting and using data in their own walled garden, but with how effectively they are connecting with their customers and combining data from many different sources to create value.

We are bringing this insight and knowledge, plus our practical experience, global network and unrivalled contacts together to deliver a really useful event helping businesses harness the opportunities of the new personal information economy. Delegates will come away from the event with practical insight, new ideas, new contacts and a clear understanding of how the personal information economy is unfolding, when and how to act.
