You're invited to the launch of ACE's latest report on Wednesday 2 June

Innovation, technology and data are at the heart of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering’s (ACE) vision for the Future of Consultancy.

The knowledge and expertise of consultancy businesses, combined with powerful technology and abundant data are allowing us to create more value for clients, owners, operators, investors and society at every stage of the asset lifecycle.

As business leaders you know all of this to be true. It’s also an agenda you need to be on top of, however the reality is somewhat more confusing on a day-to-day basis and often means navigating pushy sales pitches, conflicting advice, mountains of jargon, and investments that can quickly become out of date.

Our digital transformation group has come together to address this. Cutting Through the Hype is a report and five follow-up blogs designed to help you make crucial decisions on technology with confidence. Exploring strategy, leadership, agility, capability and outcomes, the deep-dives are written by industry experts and will give you a framework to take back into your organisation and make the right decisions.

To coincide with the launch of Cutting Through the Hype, ACE has convened a panel of experts for a “jargon free” roundtable discussion. Featuring the chair of the digital transformation group, Richard Shennan (Mott MacDonald), and guests Mark Coates (Bentley Systems), Marzia Bolpagni (Mace) and Steven Hale (Crofton),  the session on Wednesday 2 June 2021 at 12pm will help anyone – digital expert or not – engage with the issue.

Richard Shennan said, “I hope you will join us for our informal discussion as we cut through the hype around digital transformation and innovation. While the opportunities are there to be seized, Cutting through the Hype will help you approach this topic and understand the key pitfalls to avoid as you develop a digital strategy that delivers for your business, benefit-by-benefit.”
