Digital Disruption 1-Day Workshop

The pace of digital change is exponential. But if your day job is not at the leading edge of digital change, it’s impossible to keep abreast of what’s coming towards us at virtual and breakneck speed – or, more importantly, what the implications are for the work you do and the life you live. This programme is critically important for executives or those driving strategy at any level. And it’s fascinating.

How will it benefit you?

  • Learn the language and leadership qualities needed to drive digital transformation, and to drive purpose-led digital companies

  • Develop an understanding of the real meaning of customer-centricity, what it means to be a Lean-Agile organisation, and the potential power of data-driven organisations

  • Explore the value of outside-in innovation approaches, design-led thinking, and Lean start-up incubators

  • Gain invaluable insights into the emerging technologies used by digital leaders to structure their businesses and disrupt markets

Programme format

  • This full-day programme runs 8:30am – 4:30pm with a break for lunch and networking.

  • The programme is delivered in co-working, start-up or innovation hubs.

  • Delegates are invited into a community of The Field Alumni, an ongoing network for sharing and connection in the digital space.
