43% of established businesses underestimate the consequences of digital disruption in their industry.
80% of them will not survive until 2020.
Everything in the business world is changing - driven by disruptive new business models and innovative technology.
The digital landscape of today often frightens executives and leaders who are struggling to make informed business decisions in the context of new technology and digital trends.
Knowing common ‘techie’ terms gives credibility as a leader, broadens your knowledge base and allows you to ask the right questions and make the right decisions.
Understanding the context of your industry and its response to digital advances will allow you to craft a tech strategy to dominate your sector.
This 2-hour intensive interactive workshop at London's stunning location, The Gherkin, is aimed at top executives and business owners to learn the fundamental terms and rules of digital transformation to create effective dialogue with employees, suppliers, partners and clients and increase business performance.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? CEOs, directors and company managers of organisations with over 20 staff that have been trading for at least two years.

- manage tech talent and acquire the right expertise and vocabulary to innovate in-house (tech people)
