Speakers

Robert Hannigan – International Chairman, BlueVoyant

Robert is international Chairman of BlueVoyant, a global cyber security services company. He is a former Director of GCHQ, the UK’s largest intelligence and cyber security agency, and established the UK National Cyber Security Centre in 2016.

Andrew Moules – Managing Director, Red Rose Technologies

Andrew has been in the technology industry for over 20 years working for some of the leading vendors and manufacturers of unified communications.

Over the years he has managed many technology projects small & large; from a company with two users wanting their first telephone system, to multi-location, multi-technology projects for some big household names. Over that period Andrew built trusted and long-standing relationships with the market leading and upcoming technology providers in the industry.

Throughout his career, he has witnessed the phone system transform from a business utility to a must-have productivity tool and as a result the market has become overcrowded with technology and supplier choice, this has naturally led to confusion from end-users over what is best for their business.

Andrew launched Red Rose Technologies in September 2020 with the vision of helping the UK legal community with their unified communications strategy. Using his background and market independence he is guiding many law firms through the supplier world and helping them find the right technology and suppliers to support the long-term plans, growth and budgets.
