The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

I can be reached in future at andy.p.williams28@gmail.com.

I am happy to speak about the CIO role as a transformation leadership position in the sector, how NetHope is trying to help drive a higher level of digital ambition and thematic delivery and the importance of thinking from a 'global south' perspective as we devise new strategies and plans.

My hopes for the Summit are that i will learn 2-3 things about these topics that can help me as a NetHope Board member.
