THE TOPIC

What does the Modern IT Team need from Technology?

Digital transformation is the phrase of 2017, with many businesses using it not only in their business growth strategies, but also in the job titles of leaders in the business's journey. Despite the IT team playing such a central role in the digital transformation process, often the needs of modern IT teams are overlooked. With this in mind, we're asking the question, what does the modern IT team need from technology?

THE LINE UP

Dan Belmont - Cheese & Wine Expert at Bedales Wines Dan's food and wine career started in New York City when he joined B.R. Guest Hospitality as the Maitre’d of a popular steak house on Park Avenue South. Soon thereafter, Dan fell in Iove with the Finger Lakes wine region in upstate New York with their electric rieslings and cool-climate reds. It was there that he made his first foray into the industry and represented wineries as a brand ambassador at tastings and events in NYC and as a hospitality consultant for several winery tasting rooms.  Dan decided to study artisan cheese to bolster his wine work, and landed an apprenticeship in the affinage facility of the famed Murray’s Cheese in Greenwich Village. Dan has since ventured to London and works at Bedales Wines as their in house cheese and wine expert.  In his words, "It’s that curiosity and enthusiasm that I share with my guests every time I teach. I could not be more excited to share my passion with the London community here at Bedales Wines as a wine and cheese specialist – and I’m right at the heart of it all – Borough Market. Yes, I am very spoiled!" Dan will be transporting your taste buds at Cheese Thursday with 5 wines and 5 artisan cheeses. YUM.
