The opportunity of innovation
Technology underpins all we do and the pandemic has cemented this fact. Its ability to break down silos and keep communities, economies, societies and governments connected and operational has been truly remarkable. Innovation and agility have been the underlying themes that have enabled this and the organisations which operate in this sector not only have the opportunity, but responsibility to continue that innovation, whilst managing the risk and regulatory boundaries in which they operate.
As technologies converge to create new data-driven digital platforms, they are shaping the opportunities and challenges facing the largest multinationals to the smallest start-ups. Knowledge and experience in digital technology is fast becoming a required leadership necessity at executive and non-executive levels across all industries. From those at the forefront of this innovation in media, retail, banking and telecoms through to emerging sectors such agriculture, education and legal services, digital technology is at the forefront.
