LEADERSHIP IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY https://generalassemb.ly/education/leadership-in-the-digital-economy/sydney/70010 About This Event A fireside chat with General Assembly's President & COO - Scott Kirkpatrick As digital forces continue to impact the global economy, it is important for organisations to continue to adapt in order to stay relevant and competitive. What's more important is that companies are led by executives who can effectively navigate digital transformation and guide employees through these changes. Whether it's a traditional corporation, not-for-profit, small business or startup, organisations that thrive are the ones that are led by executives who understand the forces shaping their environment. Join us for an intimate event with General Assembly's President and COO - all the way from NYC! Scott will talk about his experience leading GA through a number of digital and organisational changes, including the recent acquisition by Adecco. We guarantee that you will leave with an appreciation of what leaders need to do to create a digital-ready culture in 2019 and beyond! Light breakfast / refreshments will be provided.
