Digifest 2022 Leading an Effective Digital Organisation

Leading an effective digital organisation is a complex and challenging journey that requires a passion for technology and inspiring people from across the organisation. How do you do that? How can these digital goals be achieved?

On the 8th March 2022,  John Sumpter, Debbie Baff and Zac Gribble held a round table discussion at #Digifest22 in Birmingham to talk through this very problem.

Digifest was attended by over 700 people in person and 1300+ online. For our session, we had great engagement and a packed room full of very enthusiastic participants.
