DT20 event: Tuesday 24th November

We’ve all had to adapt in the last few months. And there’s never been a better time to create new, agile ways of working.

So we’re hosting a new event. The theme? Digital transformation with a focus on Wales and the South West. This two-hour chat is going to be centred on:

  • Economic growth
  • Equality
  • Efficiency
  • Collaboration
  • Workplace evolution
  • 5G, data protection and security
  • Green tech innovation in Wales and the South West

And more.

We’re tailoring our talks to senior leaders of public and private sector organisations, who really want to speed up their digital transformation journey.

Join us for a virtual event - packed with insights and discussions - and discover our plans to take digital technology in Wales and the South West beyond limits. As well as hearing from us, we have invited speakers from businesses in Wales and the South West who will take us through their digital journeys – with connectivity at the heart of their plans. You can get involved too. Join us from 9:30 for pre-event networking and have your say in our panel discussion and Q&A before the event closes.

Hosted by Nadine Dereza Award-winning journalist and presenter
