About the Event
Join us at this exclusive private dinner with our special guest speaker Pontus Noren, Co-founder of Cloudreach, a global leader in cloud software, consulting & managed services, a partner of Microsoft and Amazon with 600+ employees and 250+ enterprise customers, acquired by PE firm Blackstone in 2017.
Having repeatedly witnessed how much time and money was being wasted on replacing or updating aging physical IT resources, he seized on the huge billion-pound opportunity opening up in the market place to specialise in the design and development of cloud computing solutions.
As a valued E2E guest, you will also be able to connect with our co-hosts: Richard Morris, CEO of IWG UK, the world’s largest serviced office supplier and Shalini Khemka, E2E’s Founder and CEO, Deal Maker for the UK Government’s Department of International Trade and a Member of the Mayor of London’s Business Advisory Board.
It promises to be a great evening and we would be thrilled if you would like to join us.
