About Us

Who we are and what we do

Digital Leaders is a global initiative that has created a shared professional space for senior leadership from different sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation.

Our community of 100,000 senior leaders are involved in leveraging technology to promote economic growth, increase social well-being and narrow social gaps.

Our themes

We focus on four major themes;

  • Digital Transformation;
  • Leadership in a Digital Age;
  • Leading Change; and
  • Leveraging technology for their social and economic benefits.

In the UK we are the premier platform with 12 regional programmes for expert opinion and networking for a cross-sector community of 40,000 senior leaders since 2010. We run over 125 face-to-face conferences, salons and events annually.

Our outcomes

We support the senior leaders in our community to:

  • Decrease bureaucracy, narrow digital gaps, make services accessible to disempowered populations, and improve economic efficiency in their organisations.
  • To develop up-to-date, innovative, high quality and efficient public services, including e-services, in areas such as education, health and welfare;
  • Use technological tools in small and medium-sized businesses and encourage e-commerce;
  • Share information together and use online services to improve and streamline services provided to citizens; and
  • To promote cross-sector collaboration and to reduce silos
