Digital Leadership Series: Are we getting digital wrong?


As part of the Hyper Island Breakfast Series:

The world is rapidly changing, with technology driving exponential change and causing shifts across society, culture and business. While there are positive developments, we have also reached a point where everything is becoming all too similar. To truly secure the opportunities in this digital revolution, we need to stop following the herd.

In his talk, Academic Director of Hyper Island, Jonathan Briggs, will be presenting thought provoking interventions about why he believes we are getting digital wrong and why we need to uncover a new set of digital mindsets to tackle the next generation of challenges.
