Digital Boardrooms

Digital Boardrooms

Digital Boardrooms are physical meetings which all participants in a group attend and which are hosted by one of the participants. They are facilitated by digital and change experts.

There will be four groups

  • Cheltenham/Gloucester starting on 26 February 2020
  • South Gloucestershire/Bristol starting late spring 2020
  • Two groups starting in 2021.

Each group will hold a minimum of six Digital Boardrooms during the programme.

Each meeting will include:
         o peer to peer discussions about business improvement and possible solutions
         o support and guidance from experts in digital technology and business change

At the end of each meeting each participant will create an individual Action Plan which they will complete before the next meeting.
