Commercial COVID Recovery Workshops –


Is your Board really ready for the Digital Transformation?

It’s time to understand what your business is really doing…and why!

For the last two years, Australia’s financial press has bemoaned the fact that Australian Boards lack digital transformation knowledge which is why, in many cases, businesses are now lagging far behind the rest of the developed world.

And yet, many companies and organisations (of all sizes) have neither the internal experience, nor access to external wisdom to ensure that the can fully understand the digital transformation, its costs and implications.

W3 CEO, Mark Cameron is quite simply one of Australia’s leading digital proponents, working closely with large scale operations sch as telstra as well as teaching at Deakin University. He has been the BRW Digital strategy columnist and currently writes for Forbes. He has developed a non-technical presentation designed to rapidly lift that level of knowledge and identify key focus areas through the lens of organizational risk and opportunity. In essence, Mark’s presentation and subsequent workshops cover:

  • Digital transformation as a competitive strategy
  • Strategic foresight longer-term organizational risks and opportunities
  • How to keep up with the pace of change
  • Maturing technology convergence
  • What non-technical decision makers need to focus on

Fees vary according to size of the operation and agreed time requirements.
