Keynote: The growing pains of Digital Leadership
Digital leadership requires a bold approach to leadership. Many leading organisations have struggled to really transform how to become leading digital businesses. Many are still struggling with digital front ends but antiquated analog middle and back office structures and decaying work practices. Some enlightened businesses who are not disruptors but have a legacy infrastructure and aging workforce are trying new and novel ways to transform their culture to embrace the digital age.
This session will touch on some of the highlights and low lights experienced by leading businesses and how they have responded to become leaders in a digital age.
