DL North East

The Digital Leaders North East programme will serve as an independent focal point of engagement and resource network for individuals and organisations across the North East who are committed to delivering sustainable and innovative digital transformation.

I recently came into contact with Digital Leaders and I think that it is such an important issue, such an important area, and it is so critical that we have the right people coming together in the right networks.

Digital Leaders is delighted to be expanding its programme locally to each of the regional areas of the UK. I am thrilled that the first of these such areas is the North East. After four years Digital Leaders has a great reputation for being content rich, offering great networking and, of course importantly, being free to attend. Working with our partners Escher Group and Socitm I look forward to hearing more about what Digital Leaders North East talk about in the coming year.
