Event description


Important Notice: You can no longer register for this event using this form, however there are a limited number of seats remaining which you can register for attendance here:

Rapid developments in technology have disrupted how business operates, necessitating organisations to rethink business models, structure, and customer engagement. Hence, digital technology, and specifically for our upcoming “Board Best Practice, Artificial Intelligence”, are not simply IT ‘issues’. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is relevant to the Board in terms of strategy, risk, business model, operations, customer engagement, revenue generation and likely the long-term sustainability of an organisation.

In addition, the UK Government is looking to place the UK at the cutting edge of AI and set up a Select Committee on Artificial Intelligence.

As an experienced or aspiring non-executive director, it is important to continue to strive for best practice and continue your learning and understanding of the role you are in. An insightful evening for any non-exec keen to keep engaged with current board level thoughts, discussions and best practices.

Relevant to non-executive and executive board members; and chairmen from a variety of sectors and types of organisation, we look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 12th June.
