One of the highlights of the event was The Forward Thinker Dialogue in which guest speakers Thomas Dillon, Senior Vice President of IT Asia, Venetian Macau Limited and Iman Mak, Senior Vice President of Information Technology Services, Li & Fung Limited shared their experience of adopting a new perspective to move Storage forward.
