Transforming Workplaces to Compete in the Digital Age

Join leading experts in exploring the Digital Transformation of Workplaces and the emerging trends and best practices.

Although disruption has long been a threat for some industries, the rise of digital technologies has accelerated the pace of disruption in virtually every other industry. As the rate at which new technologies emerge increases exponentially, there is a corresponding acceleration in the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of change facing organisational leaders. The digital transformation of our workplaces has accelerated in recent months and is posing numerous challenges to leaders, managers and employees.

In this event, we will be joined by experts in exploring the latest trends and best practices in Workplace Transformation. Our guests include Jackie Gilmore, Charlie Eckton and Brian Farrelly.
