Digital Leadership

  • ATTRACT & ENGAGE: Let’s take an example of an IT company, whose key tech people are not motivated and in fact leaving. Or an example of the banks which are not the coolest kids on the block anymore: how can you compete with start-ups or the ‘Googles’ to attract the best digital people?

  • GROWTH & PROFESSIONALISM: Start-ups have people challenges too. How to ensure dynamic startup culture, and become more professional? How to enable people to develop skills they need? How to go around freelancing? And how can the leaders be both inspirational and effective?

  • LEADING IN AGILE WORLD: When it comes to product design and delivery, terms like agile, design thinking, development sprints and hackathons are leading the way. But how do you transform classical management into digital leadership and which factors really make the difference?

  • CUSTOMERS WANT YOU HUMAN: Research show that even if your customers are in love with your tech features, they still require a highly personalised experience. Leveraging on trends like blockchain, robotization or artificial intelligence, and yet having the ‘human’ touch, can win the digital game.
