About the Digital Leadership Initiative

Enabling business leaders to stay up-to-date in today’s rapidly changing business environments

Business and technology leaders are constantly being challenged by the dynamic nature of business, technology and customer needs. The continual influx of innovative new and emerging technologies demands a fundamental shift in both leadership approaches and technology adoption strategies across the organisation.

For anyone in leadership, making sense of the dizzying array of technology, opinions, advice, and media hype is no easy task. How best to proceed?


Why Digital Leadership?

One-day, intensive workshops that help you cut through the noise.
You will be equipped with contextually relevant, and up-to-date expert knowledge and skills so that you and your digital initiatives succeed.


Digital expertise

We cover Big Data, analytics, User Experience, customer research, enterprise digital strategy and business transformation, strategic leadership, innovation,  governance, agile, operations research, risk and architecture to name but a few.

The main focus for all workshops is Enterprise Leadership and how to succeed in these key areas.

The first step in any Digital Leadership decision

It is our view that organisations striving to assess, justify, develop, implement and operate digital strategies are far better acquiring the relevant knowledge and skills from a trusted, experienced and objective source before they spend their first dollar.


How it all started

Early in 2016, Rob Livingstone, Jason Wong, Mark van Rijmenam and Mike Feghali (who have known each other professionally for some time),  got together over a coffee to share their latest industry insights, perspectives and experiences gained in their own businesses.

They came to the common realisation that most - if not all- executives and organisations that they had recent dealings with, were struggling with coming to grips with the new digital landscape.
