We are pleased to welcome Graeme Beardsell, the recently appointed CEO of Fujitsu Oceania, for our first face-to-face event in over a year.

The topic of his talk is Fujitsu’s 50 years in Australia, Digital Transformation and the new normal.

Next year Fujitsu is celebrating the 50th anniversary of business in Australia. Founded in Australia in 1972 with a focus on the sale and support of Japan-built mainframe computers, the company expanded rapidly as it gained major Australian accounts such as the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Today Fujitsu A-NZ is a leading service provider of business, information technology and communications solutions.

Mr. Beardsell is Melbourne-based, so this is a rare opportunity to make his acquaintance in Sydney.
