Event description
Why IT investments fail to deliver and how digital-savvy NEDs can help businesses avoid the pitfalls. In Conversation with Stuart Lynn.

About this event

Too often unsuccessful IT investments hit the headlines, in the press or on board room agendas.

In the age of digital transformation, senior leaders can rush into buying expensive IT, yet fail to realise any returns from doing so. Worse, many technology investments in heralded as a silver bullett, run over time and budget, and may even take businesses backwards.

Stuart Lynn is a highly experienced senior technology leader, including his time as CTO at Sage, and a NED on several boards of large and small enterprises. He is an advocate for helping boards make well-informed decisons about when, where and how to invest wisely in IT.

Join us to learn from Stuart's fascinating insights into the importance of building a digitally-savvy board.
