PCR Boot Camp North 2016 Speaker Profile: Paul Jackson, Principal Analyst, Ovum

PCR Boot Camp North 2016takes place at the Renaissance Hotel in central Manchester on Wednesday, November 16th.

The event will examine and celebrate the trends, opportunities and challenges facing the UK IT channel in the coming years.

As part of our Future Hub: Tech Biz & Innovation conference stream, Ovum principal analyst Paul Jackson will be addressing the VR and AR opportunities for retailers.

Paul’s expertise covers media ecosystem strategy, connected technology, consumer behavior and social media, so the session isn’t to be missed if you’re looking to grow your retail business into new and exciting areas.

In his role, Paul covers the evolving media landscape, operator world, and connected technology as companies try to build future business models in a changing world. He is a seasoned speaker at international conferences, as well as a regular press commentator.

“Both media and consumer technology firms need to recognize that their offerings are much more compelling when offered as part of an easy to use ecosystem," says Jaconson. "Separately, best content, best distribution or best devices rarely win the day."

Paul joined Informa in early 2013 as a Principal Analyst. Prior to that, he ran his own small independent analyst house (AardvarkA Research Ltd). This came on the back of two years working for Microsoft as a senior manager responsible for market insight. Prior to this, Paul spent almost a decade at Forrester Research as a Principal Analyst covering consumer technology and media. He’s also worked for an advertising agency (HHCL) as a ‘Digital Guru’ / Planner and worked as a Management Consultant for both Deloitte Consulting and Logica.
