At the CEPIC Congress in London on 16 through 18 May each day will begin with an inspiring key note address.

On Wednesday 16th May award-winning photojournalist, Jonathan Torgovnik, author of Bollywood Dreams and Intended Consequences, will show his work which is a reminder of the powerful role photography plays in an increasingly visual world.

On Thursday 17th May, Dittmar Frohmann, Director of International Product at iStock and Getty
Images will give a keynote presentation on the opportunities for content creators in the mobile space.

And finally, on Friday 18th May, Dave Coplin, Director of Search for Microsoft UK’s Advertising and Online business, will focus the spotlight on the power and potential of search and the way it holds the key to society’s effective use of all that technology and the internet has to offer. Coplin is an established thought leader in the UK and has spent a considerable time in the Public Sector providing leadership and guidance around key technology policy issues like Cloud Computing, Open Government, Big Data and the “consumerization” of technology.
