You and your class

This program is designed for individual business executives and teams in mid to senior-level management. Ideal participants include: general managers, executives in business development, marketing, sales, operations, customer service, HR, legal and finance.

For maximum impact, and where possible, we recommend you join as a team of colleagues.

Your goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the latest of innovative technologies and apply them to your business. You have a working understanding of technology but not necessarily technical expertise.

Your class is individually put together through a careful selection process, to ensure that you experience the most impactful learning with a truly diverse group of global peers. Your class will become a trusted resource, encourage your learning journey and surprise you in many beneficial ways, both during and beyond your classroom experience.

When you encounter awe-inspiring technology, it can be challenging to see how you can apply it to your own business. You need a framework and language to ask deeper, sharper questions and find the right strategy. TransformTECH gives you all this, plus the chance to prepare your own prototype with help from experts.
