Digital Leadership Panel – Melbourne
Date: Wed 29th March, 2017
Time: 6 – 8.30pm
Venue: ANZ Centre, 833 Collins St, Melbourne
Euan Semple, Simon Terry and Anne Bartlett-Bragg will share their experiences and debate the key issues facing leadership teams in the digital workplace – from culture, to analytics, to AI, to technology.
Current research from Harvard reports that 90% of executives believe their organisations will be disrupted by digital business models. Yet 70% of them believe they don’t have necessary skills, operating structures or leaders to adapt.
Meanwhile – the digital divide is increasing. Organisations who have successfully transformed to new ways of working are out-performing the digital laggards.
What is becoming evident, is the role of leadership in successful organisations. Being a digital leader requires more than just implementing technology into your workplace, it requires a fundamental shift in mindsets.

Euan Semple is an early adopter of digital technologies and an innovator who has worked with major organisations like the BBC, Nokia, the World Bank, and NATO. He believes that companies that are succeeding in the marketplace today are those that are beginning to initiate a dialogue with customers and staff to improve their operations and processes.
Euan offers unique insights into how to make the latest technologies work for you and your organisation. He has helped organisations, and more importantly the people in them, to get their heads around social media, social business, and the social web both inside and outside the firewall.
In his book ‘Organizations Don’t Tweet’, Euan identifies that there are remarkable opportunities to mine the intellects of senior managers, backroom operators, frontline staff and customers to create a more responsive business model.
Euan believes those leaders and managers that stay connected to their community at work and with their customers have the best chance to survive and flourish in this new ‘Age of Disruption’.
