Digital leaders discuss opportunities and challenges of digital transformation

ACE's Digital Leadership Conference began this morning at Prince Phillip House in Central London, bringing together senior digital leaders from across the consultancy sector to discuss the challenges faced and the opportunities available due to digital transformation.

Kicked off by ACE Chief Executive Hannah Vickers, and with a keynote presentation from Mark Enzer of the Centre for Digital Built Britain, the early panel session focused on client needs, with Sarah Hayes of the National Infrastructure Commission and Miranda Sharp of Ordnance Survey joining Tideway's Peter Vale for a session on client evolution.

The second session of the day saw Tony Scott of Scott Communications and Buro Happold take delegates through the findings of ACE's Digital Leadership Roundtables, which were held in the Spring.

To dig deeper into the issues raised, Tony then led a panel consisting of Mace's Dr Marzia Bolpagni, Imperial College's Professor Jennifer Whyte, Casey Rutland of Royal HaskoningDHV and Costain's David Owens for an in depth breakdown of each thematic area.

Delegates will soon be breaking for lunch, where they will be taken through the latest innovation from our event sponsors Bentley Systems and Microsoft, exhibition supporter Deltek, the Environmental Industries Commission Green Data event, and Xeropoint.
