We spend more than one third of our adult lives at work. So shouldn’t we do everything we can to make it better?

The pandemic has given us the opportunity to rethink the workplace. We’re discovering new ways to work – more remote communication, less time in the office, and new kinds of work-life balance.

It’s time to reimagine the future of work. What better way to start than by getting advice from one of the best in the business?

In this episode of the CIO Masterclass, we have Andrew Proctor from Staffordshire University joining to give us the inside track on some of the things they’ve done to improve the faculty and student experience.

From being the first university in Europe to fully migrate to the cloud, to launching the first dedicated undergraduate Esports degree in the world. Andrew is no stranger to making positive things happen on the digital front.

It’s not just us saying that by the way. Andrew has now been named Chief Digital Officer of the Year at the Computing Digital Technology Leaders Awards.

On this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What Andrew thinks the best higher education institutions are doing to build a feeling of community and connectedness while remote
  • How expectations of the CIO role are changing – more business, less tech
  • What goes into creating and leading a good organizational culture
