Digital is disrupting all our industry sectors, as we speak, worldwide.

Our ACGSV panel of senior executives will talk about how they drive the digital change for their clients but also throughout their own organizations, including creating and communicating vision, establishing governance and building a digital-ready culture.

We will also cover the different innovative ways for companies to be “disruptors” in their market before being disrupted. Why is it important? What does it mean for them to thrive in the Digital Age?
