IMD’s Digital Leader Summit is a learning and sharing event that enables executives to connect with colleagues facing similar challenges. Participants can discuss the changing dynamics impacting them, their role, and their business in a safe and open environment. This invitation only event includes ample time for high level networking during a reception and formal dinner as well as a buffet lunch.

This year’s edition of the Digital Leader Summit features the following highlights:

» Separating hype from the reality of disruption. This session will be led by guest speaker Didier Bonnet, SVP & Global Practice Leader of Digital Transformation at Capgemini Invent and author of seminal book Leading Digital, joined by Prof. Michael Wade and Jialu Shan.    

» An insight session on digital governance: how organizations can establish efficient and effective forms of governance to support their digital transformation efforts.

» An aperitif that features a teaser for the 2019 IMD Digital Competitiveness Index, a country ranking that assesses the extent to which a country adopts and explores digital technologies leading to transformation in government practices, business models and society in general.

» We will canvas our attendees’ transformation challenges and design a session to discuss these challenges with their peers.  

» New research on digital leadership.  In this session, we reveal how effectiveness can be improved by managing seven key leadership tensions.
