Digital Leaders, the national initiative promoting digital transformation, leadership and innovation, last week announced the dates for the UK’s 4th Digital Leaders Week, with the week being held from the 15th to the 19th of June.

If you are leading in the UK tech for good sector, now is the time to get involved with Digital Leaders Week. There are several ways you can place yourself at the heart of the UK’s digital revolution.

Running an event is the best way to showcase your ideas and initiatives. Digital Leaders Week is an open platform event, which means any individual or company can take part by running an event.

You can also become one of the week’s partners, with opportunities to speak and exhibit at one of the Digital Leaders Week conferences.

Several tech for good events that have already been announced, including the ‘Welsh Tech Festival for Social Good’ – a free event that will bring together digital leaders from the Public, Private, Third and Social Business Sectors to share experience and knowledge and inspire others to explore the potential of digital for their organisation. The festival is being held on the 15th of June in Cardiff by Wales Cooperative Centre, in partnership with Nesta and CAST.

The DigitalAgenda Impact Awards have also been announced as a headline event in Digital Leaders Week. The awards celebrate the best in UK tech for good, and will feature engaging on-stage content from social impact technology experts.

Digital Leaders are expecting 25,000 individuals to attend 500 webinars, conferences, roundtables and workshops across the UK, to learn about driving forward digital transformation in business, government and charities.

Over the five days they’ll discover best practice, meeting the organisations that can help them develop ideas and practical solutions and building their peer to peer networks to share new thinking. 

This year’s headline events are spread across the UK, with the Digital Leaders 100 Awards in Leeds, Digital DNA Conference in Belfast, Young Digital Leaders Conference in Manchester, and a Local Government Innovation Marketplace in Edinburgh.
