Is this program for me?

Our board programs are suitable for a wide range of board professionals including board members, chairpersons, board secretaries, aspiring board members, and professionals working closely with boards. We also welcome family business members and teams.

I really wanted to understand how to use technology to transform my organization and have a cybersecurity perspective. The program is not about digital transformation as a fad, but as a core strategic imperative, helping facilitate and use technology to leapfrog obstacles. It was an amazing group of diverse participants, with lots of experience. I probably learned as much from the participants as from the speakers. I loved this program; it was excellent.

Digital Transformation must solve real-world problems for your organization. The program helped me get clear on that fact and allowed me to understand the language around the topic.
