"As we enter the digital business era, organisations are being disrupted across all industries through the immense power of digital technology. Digital is fundamentally changing the game for many organisations and it has become a question of when, rather than if, your business will be disrupted – either by competitors or through your own efforts," said Naeem Seedat, who is digital government lead at Accenture.
Seedat will be facilitating the workshop on 12 October. "The workshop is aimed at unpacking the enigma of digital, the trends that are fundamentally disrupting businesses, and importantly, how to get started using and responding to technological change in a practical way," he concluded.
