Unlocking innovation & navigating uncertainty with digital

7 December 2023, London 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm BST
In partnership

Dinner Location: The Lanesborough

How can your digital transformation help you navigate volatility and uncertainty amidst constant disruptions?

The future of the design and make industries relies on the understanding and successful implementation of thoughtful moves where digitization, sustainability, and workforce meet.

Leaders like you are always looking for new ways to improve and digitalise, aiming to build innovative capabilities that drive competitive advantage. Across industries, more business leaders and experts say access to skilled talent is a top challenge for their companies more than any other factor. Disruption is coming at you from many angles and visibility is lower than it’s been for many years. But it’s not all doom and gloom, as you also know that disruption brings opportunity – opportunity to re-evaluate, to change what’s not working, and to be ready for the next challenge that comes along.

Tonight, we look to inspire you through a robust discussion with your fellow business leaders on how to engineer greater agility into your business, and the role digital transformation plays in that.

And, so, from the entire team at Meet the Boss and Autodesk, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.

Bon Appetit!
