YOUR DIGITAL AGENDA

CEO.digital and Pure Storage invite you to an exclusive virtual networking experience on how leaders can develop rapid agility to navigate crisis and thrive. You’ll be joined by expert speakers and a selection of the country’s top C-suite peers for an insightful business discussion as you enjoy the complimentary luxury refreshments we’ll deliver straight to your door.

In order to survive the Covid-19 shockwave, many organisations have had to adapt at pace. While for some this has been a challenge, others have successfully insulated themselves from the impacts of major change and moved swiftly to a place of prosperity. But what exactly does rapid agility mean in terms of mindset shift, digital transformation and the role of today’s technology leaders?

Join industry peers and experts from Pure Storage to learn how you can develop your own version of rapid agility in order to navigate through crisis and turn threats into opportunities. Mark Moerdyk, CTO at Beazley will share how implementing the Rapid Agility approach earlier this year has enabled his organisation to seamlessly transition to a more flexible, agile way of working while facilitating effective face-to-face engagement with their customers over digital platforms. You’ll also discover the 6 key considerations and steps you need to follow to succeed in 2021 and beyond.

RSVP today to secure your place alongside industry-leading peers and receive a luxury selection of Fortnum & Mason teas, coffees and biscuits to enjoy during the discussion.

Places are limited to 15 leaders, so register now to secure your spot and discover how you can become rapidly agile!
