How digital disruption has transformed the workforce

Today (12 October) marks the start of Digital Leaders Week.

Digital Leaders, the national initiative promoting digital transformation, leadership and innovation has launched the UK’s 4th Digital Leaders Week.

This is the UK’s biggest single gathering of people focused on four key questions driven by digital transformation: What’s next? Why? How? And where?

Over 60,000 free sessions have been booked so far by leaders in business, government and charities. These online events will be provided by 400 experts from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland with over 300 hours of content over the five days.

The online launch heard from the four Digital Ministers for the UK, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. From Whitehall, Caroline Dineage MP, Minister for Digital and Culture, DCMS said, “The fourth Digital Leaders Week comes at such an unprecedented time in all our lives.”

“The past months have dramatically accelerated digital transformation across our economy.”

“We must now use DLWeek to learn from this pandemic by sharing our experiences and help one another grow and develop, not just across the tech sector, but the economy as a whole.”

Russell Haworth, Chair of Digital Leaders said, “It’s so important at this difficult time to have a National Week that helps all leaders build their digital confidence and helps deliver the digital transformation essential for a positive future for the UK economy and our public services.”

Louise Stokes, Director for Digital Leaders Week added, “Every expert speaker is giving their time for free this week.”

“So if you’re facing accelerated digital transformation or if your organisation is, then Digital Leaders Week is your opportunity to find the ideas, build your network and hear about the initiatives and services you need to transform during these challenging times.”
