Do you have a strategy to address digital disruption? How do you plan to address the impact of the digital network economy on your business? Do you understand the profound challenges that the convergence of technology and globalization will have on strategy and leadership?

We are pleased to invite you to a two days masterclass that will enable you to acquire the requisite combination of world class conceptual skills and organisational capabilities to build an adaptive and resilient organisation fit to compete and excel in today’s complex, interconnected world.

The masterclass will:
• Reveal the scale of disruption from the convergence of tech and globalization.

• Provide new models of management.
• Use case studies to ensure that the ability to apply learning is maximized.
• Small and select group size to ensure participant relevance and individual attention.
• Enable an understanding of the importance of networks and how they function as transformers of strategy and operations.
