About this Event


ITIL is more than a simple set of best practices guidelines to optimise a few IT service management processes. ITIL is a set of non-proprietary, comprehensive,
well-documented and fully integrated set of management procedures and best practices that optimises IT service management and IT/business alignment. With over 20,000
businesses, governments and non-profit organisations using it, ITIL is the most widely accepted IT process management framework in the world.

But has it worked? Many IT organisations suffer from poor perceptions of value and feel powerless to improve the situation. IT’s top challenge right now is to build and
demonstrate value to the rest of the organisation - be that commerce, government or academia. How are CIO’s and their IT Service Managers to leverage ITIL and ITSM to
meet that challenge head on and win?

Do not be content with prepared remarks alone. Go one-on-one with Gerard, asking the tough questions, eliciting the most revealing replies. Trends are confirmed. Illusions
shattered. News is broken. Live on the breakfast briefing stage.


You are cordially invited to attend an IT Service Management breakfast session presented by The Art of Service. Gerard Blokdijk is Managing Director and co-founder of The
Art of Service. Prior to The Art of Service Gerard has successfully set up and managed another IT Service Management education and research firm. He is the author of “IT
Management becomes Service”, a frequent publisher and public speaker.

Gerard has an active duty in IT Management since the late 80’s. He has held positions as Capacity Manager, Security Manager, Disaster Recovery Manager, overall IT
Manager and CIO for large organisations like ING Bank, ABN AMRO and Philips.

Gerard holds the Managers Certificate in IT Service Management.
