Leadership Masterclass Three: Digital Leadership for a Digital Future

5th July 2023 10:00 – 12:00

Digital transformation is now common parlance in most organisations. The adoption of digital technology to digitise non-digital products, services, or operations to become a 'digital business' aims to increase business value through innovation, invention, customer experience, and/or efficiency. Failure to transform digitally will undermine and threaten the survival of many organisations. However, digital transformation is about more than just technology - it's about people. Many well-intended digital transformation initiatives often fail due to non-alignment with organisational culture. Hear from expert speakers as they explore the latest digital trends, the core components of successful digital transformation and the inherent risks, and the critical links between digital transformation and culture.
