You’re invited: Practical tools to guide you through your digital transformation journey

17 Sep 2019

As we adjust to exponential digital change, a new form of Adaptive Leadership is needed.

In response to the challenges businesses are facing in the digital age, a series of inspiring Digital Transformation events for New Zealand and Australian leaders will be taking place this September.

Designed and delivered by the Australian Graduate School of Management, the ACCELERATE DX Program promises to deliver practical Digital Transformation tools and thought leadership.

This program is for senior professionals seeking to shift the digital dial for their business.

Accelerate founder and creator Samuel Williams says, “Attendees will gain first-hand guidance on how to adapt to and navigate the exponential change occurring in our digital age.

“The Fourth Industrial Revolution is rapidly transforming each and every industry. How we adapt and innovate sustainably is crucial to continued and improved prosperity for all.” 

The summit will keynote David Gram of LEGO Ventures and the masterclasses will draw on top academic and business talent across the fields of AI, IoT, Big Data, Adaptive Leadership and Ecosystem Development.

Speakers include Max Theseira, Rosamund Christie, David Goad, Josep Curto and Samuel Williams.

Also featured are technology showcases from leading digital business and research transformers such as Certus Digital, Cognition and Uneeq Digital Humans.

In a world-first, delegates will also be invited to join the EMMET community and experience the beta version of the LEGO based app - EMMET.ai. EMMET is a digital application created for LEGO users and ACCELERATE attendees will be transformed into their own personalised digital LEGO mini-figure.

“Regardless of their industry or role, participants will get to learn some of the key methods, frameworks and technologies that can really shift the digital dial for them – as digital leaders and organisational change agents at an individual professional level,” says Williams.

The events will be held at the following locations:

  • AUCKLAND - THURSDAY 26 SEPTEMBER
  • There will also be a live stream edition for the APAC region on Thursday 26th September
  • SYDNEY - TUESDAY 24 SEPTEMBER 2019
  • MELBOURNE - THURSDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2019
