Venue 1 Lombard Street 


We are living in a time of unparalleled business change and disruption; an era where 50 percent of the Fortune 500 from 2000 no longer exist. An era where Washington University estimate that ‘in the next 10 years, 40% of the Fortune 500 companies will be gone’. From established market leaders, to fast growth start-ups, the impact of digital disruption is being felt at all levels of the business world.

Just 10 years ago, technology was ranked as low as 6th by CEOs in terms of external factors influencing their enterprises. Today, digital disruption consistently upends existing revenue models and provides new opportunities for growth. Business as usual is no longer an option: digital transformation is vital to staying relevant.

So in order to keep ahead of disruption, how can we challenge existing ideas and foster internally disruptive innovation?

What is the best way to go about harnessing and democratizing data to provide value across lines of business? And with an increasing number of digital access points, which security measures are most effective?

Join Meet the Boss Live in partnership with Workday for this conversation, as we explore strategies for embracing disruption, tackling transformation and using digital as a driver for growth.
