    Making IT Good for Society: BCS Past, Present and Future

    BCS, Southampton Street, London, arrive 18:00 for a 18:30 start
    Ray Long FBCS CITP Ceng, Department of Work and Pensions, Past President of BCS, March 2016-17
  • Why did you join the BCS? How has it helped you during your career? What contribution could you make as it evolves to meet the challenges of 2017 and beyond? Drawing on his own 35-year history with the BCS, this year's President, Ray Long, will lead a discussion on where the Institute has come from, how it is currently positioning itself to take the lead in making IT good for society, and how, at a time when a younger generation requires a different type of service from its professional bodies, it can develop during the years ahead to meet this need.

    Ray will consider our current strategy, challenges and areas of interest, as well as the theme for his Presidential year of driving up the success rate of IT projects. As the BCS celebrates its 60th anniversary, please come prepared not just to listen, but also to make your views known, as we debate the issues which will determine the success of our next 60 years and beyond.

    Ray Long is Director at Department for Work and Pensions and CEO of Benefits and Pensions Digital Technology Services Ltd. Prior to this his experience includes senior roles running major government programmes at Department of Health; Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions; Northern Ireland Business Development Service; NHS (Choose and Book Service); Cabinet Office and HMRC. Ray is an Associate Lecturer with the Open University, specializing in leadership and strategy, and is a graduate of the Government's Major Projects Leadership Academy
