DL Scotland

The Digital Leaders Scotland programme will serve as an independent focal point of engagement and resource network for individuals and organisations across Scotland who are committed to delivering sustainable and innovative digital transformation. The emerging salon topics and webinars in the Scottish programme are identified and discussed by a Scottish steering group (which includes representatives from local government, the private sector and non-profit organisations).
