25 years of thought leadership
Over the next few weeks we’ll be launching the Digital Leadership Report (DLR).
I think the DLR is amazing. For something to run for 25 years, and celebrate its silver jubilee, is a fantastic show of our commitment to long term projects that make a difference. What makes it even more special is that it’s totally unique to us and provides us with information that we can use to talk to our clients and contacts about things our competitors simply can’t.
One of the big talking points in this year’s report is the popularity of Artificial Intelligence. You may have seen this week that in NashTech we have launched our own AI powered chatbot, BonBon.
I’m so excited about the launch this year. We’ll be launching to the press on 30th October (this coming Monday) to coincide with the global AI Summit taking place at Bletchley Park in the UK. This will be followed by our event at the UK Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 7th November and the report will be live and online from Thursday 9th November.
With local events already booked in Sydney and Singapore, I can’t wait to see where our report will take us into 2024.
What does it mean for you?
We really want you to make the most of the report and the data we have. It is a great tool that makes us stand out from our peers, so keep an eye on your inbox for your invite to our internal briefings, which you should receive shortly.
This will be your chance to understand the report and how to use it, from people that have used it for years to great effect. It’s the perfect excuse to pick up the phone or book a meeting with your current and target clients.
Here are 5 things you may want to know…
For those of you that can’t wait until the public launch, here’s five facts that we elaborate on in the report.
1. There are big concerns around the (non) regulation of AI
2. Flexible working benefits gender diversity
3. Budgets and headcounts seem to be returning to pre-pandemic levels after hypergrowth in the last couple of years
4. Not every organisation has a plan for net zero, but the majority of those that do are confident they will reach it
5. More digital leaders are part of the executive team, and that has an impact on business performance
I hope you all enjoy your weekend, and look forward to sharing the full results with you all shortly.
