Last month Norfolk Network tackled the knotty subject of Digital Transformation. They invited Karen Longdin to pass on her knowledge and experience working with Hoseasons to keep pace with change. Digital Transformation fascinates me so I was delighted to write up the event report for the Norfolk Network website.
Hoseasons is a holiday company with a 70-year heritage born out of boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads. Now part of Wyndham Vacation Rentals UK and providing all types of breaks in the UK and abroad, Hoseasons is on a journey to become the No.1 holiday company for customers, owners and partners.
Championing the digital transformation of Hoseasons is Karen Longdin, Head of IT Development and Architecture. Karen’s previous roles have included Head of IT at Stansted Airport and Assistant Head of IT for Essex Police.
