Exploiting Technology-Enabled Innovation to Drive Organisational Outcomes

September 05 2019

CEF is delighted to partner with Gartner for this briefing on digital transformation.

Leading Gartner analyst, Dale Kutnick, will deliver this briefing on how organisations are accelerating their adoption of digital capabilities to better address current and future customers and constituents, and to improve their efficiency and effectiveness. 

Some CEOs are developing new investment strategies and restructuring their organisations to address the rapidly evolving local, regional and global environments, and to confront new competitors.

Some local and regional governments (like Singapore, Estonia, Dubai, Boston, Stockholm, Rotterdam) are moving aggressively to transform.


This effort will demand financial engineering, new partnerships and new workforce capabilities.

This executive discussion will highlight some of the advanced technologies that can be utilized to help drive organisational innovation around products and services, cost optimization, and citizen engagement, and highlight some of the growing cybersecurity threats to our digital future.
