    Thank you again for your participation and support of our CIO Leadership Exchange. Your session really created a buzz and was a wonderful way to end our Day 1. Your presentation was very well received - the perfect stage setter for Bank of America and Lufthansa- and your facilitation of the conversation was really well done!

    James also opened BI 2010 in Johannesburg, speaking on the topic "Does BI Matter?" Here's James' presentation with audio. Over 80% of the audience rated the relevance, content and presentaiton excellent or good putting it in the top 3 for the conference as a whole. As the chair of the summit put it:

    In a world where best practise and latest trends are a Google away, the success of any conference depends on fresh ideas and different thinking. In his keynote at the recent BI Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa, James Taylor provided exactly that. His challenging presentation helped to ensure that BI really does matter, and prompted all delegates to consider the rest of the content against the important backdrop of decisions that influence business success. James illustrated his talk with relevant in-depth examples, case studies and personal experiences, and his conversational style set the tone for a successful and enjoyable two days.
