Digital Leaders is a shared professional online space and face-to-face programme, for leaders across all sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation.
In the UK we are the premier digital leadership platform with 12 regional programmes, expert opinion and networking for a growing cross-sector community of over 60,000 leaders.
We aim to build the capacity of the UK’s leadership creating effective digital leaders, raising awareness of the importance of good leadership in digital transformation, highlighting the digital challenges the UK faces and raising the profile of digital solutions that work across all sectors.
We are working to eliminate the issues that hold back leaders such as access to knowledge, networks and access to expertise.
Our story began in the basement of BEIS in Victoria Street working to promote the “Digital by default “ agenda to transport the UK’s public services set up in Government with Francis Maude, Martha Lane-Fox and Mike Bracken. Since then we’ve been on a journey and have spread our activities to cover the whole of the UK since 2013 and across the public, private and non-profit sectors creating a national week of Digital Transformation, DL Week in 2017.
We’re here to accelerate this growth and connect these networks.
How are we governed and how do we select priority topics?
The emerging topics covered by the Digital Leaders programme are identified by our advisory board and steering group of partners.
How are we funded?
In order to maintain a high quality programme of inclusive free to attend Conferences, Salons and webinars, we have funding partners who are carefully selected to ensure that our agenda remains independent and non-aligned to any particular business models, commercial perspectives, or specific set of technologies.
