Many directors are feeling outmatched by the ferocity of changing technology, emerging risks, and new competitors. This Director’s Circle will look at governance and the digital age in an address from Stephen Scheeler, former MD & Industry Head at Facebook.
The presentation will be followed by table discussions and a hypothetical case study. A light supper and drinks will be provided.
