Podcast: Major General Tom Copinger-Symes CBE on the future of digitisation in the MOD

TD-Info has a Podcast channel where you can listen to presentations recorded at events (e.g. LOGNET) and interviews with key individuals from the defence enterprise.

In this Podcast, Major General Tom Copinger-Symes CBE is interviewd by TD-Info's Luca Leone about the future of digitisation in the MOD.

Tom spoke on a number of topics including his role in the new UK Strategic Command and the key part culture plays in the implementation of new technologies.

“I am a believer that until a technology is in the hands of a user with a sense of how they want to fight with it, the technology itself isn’t that useful. It is not about the tech, it is about the people, it’s about the culture"

You can listen to the podcast on Apple here and on Spotify here, or via the web browser here - or search for "Team Defence" in your preferred podcast app.
