The next event will take place in London on the 22nd and 23rd October in the fantastic venue of Stamford Bridge, the home ground of Chelsea F.C.,  is a unique opportunity to connect with leading digital and strategy executives.

Effective digital strategy is central to business success. In the modern business environment, technological developments and the advances of globalisation have created unparalleled opportunities for businesses to expand their markets. But new opportunity has opened the door to new challenges.

Digital companies and the ones that want to be winners, have to be thinking broadly about whom to collaborate with and how to use the digital tools and right customised strategy. In most cases, they will have to get our of their comfort zone and that may include collaborating with firms that would have been considered competitors historically—or, at the very least, collaborating with firms that can share data, digital assets with you.

Digital winners are also creating the right scale of investment in their digital strategy and IT infrastructure. It’s very hard to keep up with the pace of evolution in the digital world unless you have a flexible innovation technological and IT infrastructure and one that can plug and play digital assets, products and services from other places.
