ITSM is like riding a bike… (itSMF Conference Ticket Winner)

And the winning ticket goes to...
And the winner is….

We recently gave all you, our fantastic readers the opportunity to win a FREE ticket to the upcoming itSMF UK Conference and Exhibition (10-11 November at Novotel London West), and it’s time to announce the winner of the competition!

The instructions were simple: Tell us why you deserve a free ticket in less than 200 words.

And the competition winner is…

Duncan Watkins, IT Service Management Analyst at IT Project Manager at SHL Talent Measurement from CEB!

Duncan’s entry was chosen because of his commitment to making ITSM easy to understand and enjoyable together with his sheer dedication to the cause by not one, not two but FOUR wardrobe changes during his submission video! Don’t believe me, check it out for yourself…

Duncan states that ITSM should be as simple as possible for people to understand, engage and debate in. Having witnessed those attempting to mystify attendees to perhaps try and sell more, appear wiser than they are or simply for bit of showing off he promises to use the ticket for good and debunk and demystify a lot of what will be said across the 2 days.

In short, I see it not just as an opportunity to engage, network and learn but also an opportunity to help those who might otherwise be dazzled by the bright lights of er, the Novotel.

We look forward to catching up with Duncan at the event, and hope that he doesn’t mind being photographed, videoed, expected to sing once Mr Barclay Rae tracks down a piano and generally pestered by us throughout the conference

And to all the other entrants…

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone else who submitted an entry. We hope to be able to run similar competitions for other exciting ITSM events in 2015.

Whilst there are no further free tickets available, there is still plenty of time for you to book your place at the conference. If you can’t make it, then keep on top of the event by following the Twitter hashtag #ITSM14.

We hope to see you there!
