What is it?

How does it work?

Every GDS Summit has one stated aim: to help attending executives implement their key projects more effectively. We do this by developing an in-depth understanding of those executives' project needs, the business outcomes they want to achieve, and the challenges they face in terms of hitting those goals.

Who Has Attended?

Our summits are designed for executives looking to take their business to the next level – from market-leading brands to disruptive new entrants. As such, we’ve worked with some of the world’s best-loved and most forward-thinking businesses.

From Tech to Talent: What are the Key Building Blocks of Industry 4.0?

Culture and the Workforce

Understanding the major disruptors in manufacturing and harnessing these to achieve operational excellence.

  • Many organizations look at building blocks for Smart Manufacturing/IIoT/Industry 4.0 to consist of sensing, control, analytics and predictive modelling. However, data contextualization and frictionless movement of information in an OT/IT platform is the glue that ties all this together in a manufacturing solution. What are the panelists thoughts on this view? The manufacturing industry is shifting from an industry driven by people and machines to one which is driven by data and software. How will manufacturing organizations prepare for this future? And how will they adapt to encompass software into their products and their business models
  • Technology is necessary but not sufficient for making Industry 4.0 solutions a success for manufacturers. Talent, culture and business models are as important. What are some good examples of approaches that address these?
  • There is a fear that only large companies with sufficient internal capacities for talent and investment can leverage and benefit from Industry 4.0 and Smart Manufacturing. The reality is that small and medium organizations make up the majority of the manufacturing landscape. What should we be doing to enable these manufacturers to be part of this journey?


What does Industry 4.0 really mean for your organisation? Join the conversation to discuss the elements and driving forces which make up Industry 4.0, learn from the experience of other executives and start to build a business strategy which will enable you to make the most of all Industry 4.0 has to offer.

  • How to build an initial strategy?
  • How to manage organisational silos, as your shopfloor and operations are increasingly driven by data and software?
  • How to decide where to invest, and justify investment to leadership?

Industry 4.0: Getting Started

How to align your organisation from the top floor to the shop floor

  • As your organisation continues to evolve how will you support your workforce?
  • How can you optimize employee experience, in a climate where supporting and retaining your workforce is essential?
  • What are the best tactics to close the skills gap as operations become increasingly digital?
  • How can you support and modernize your front line leadership?

Join us for our Gala Dinner & Keynote Speaker. An opportunity to network with your peers in a social environment with a three course dinner and wine whilst listening to an industry leader discuss a key topic.
