Themed session – Leadership

Forget digital transformation, just #BeMoreDigital 

Digital transformation has become a widely used term that often causes confusion and panic. But it really doesn’t have to.  

Even with the pressures of a new working world, becoming a more digitally-driven organisation shouldn’t scaremonger or cause anxiety. Change will always be challenging but it should also be exciting, well planned and inclusive of those who are a part of it.  

Like many other charities, we’re also on our own digital journey and have had to rapidly change a lot of our working practices and services. In this session, we’ll discuss the key elements charities need to fully embrace a #BeMoreDigital mindset and build digital into everything you do.
