David Roche: The Internet business but not as we know it!

This is the title of the talk to be given by David Roche, president of hotels.com® Worldwide and Venere.com™ during the next Cardiff Business School Lecture Series 2010/11.

As the coexistence of digital technology within society becomes ever more ubiquitous, and our everyday experiences are not as we’ve ever known them, it is unsurprising that too is not as we know it! With dynamic digital evolution and the rise of user-generated and co-created content, it is evident that today requires change – in our strategies, practices and ethos.

So I wonder, what will David Roche have to say about “The : , but not as we know it!” If you are interested in , technology and the digital (r)evolution and want to listen to one company president’s views, come along and join me and my colleagues at Cardiff School at this public lecture. Attendance is free, but please book your place to avoid disappointment.
