Is this for you?

The Digital Development Programme is aimed at corporate sponsors, ICT development managers, digital leaders, HR and organisational development professionals or those involved in digital or organisational change.

We will share best practice and provide the tools to identify and define your readiness for digital; consider the key components of your culture that may hold you back and identify ways to tackle these; explore new ways of nudging behaviour and develop strategies to hard wire ‘the new normal’ in your business operations – in what is described as the 4th industrial revolution.

To take part in the Digital Development Programme you will need to be available from 10.00am – 13.30pm on all three dates. Dates TBC.

Location: North West Employers Offices, Building 8, 2nd Floor, Exchange Quay, M5 3EJ

Please note that places are limited and will offered on a first come, first serve basis
