A vision for Britain – Digital Inside and Out

Post Brexit and COVID, and as we enter the digital era, the UK needs to make its mark once more on the world economic stage. As a nation we need a vision that maintains our position within the world’s leading economies many of whom will be dominated by digital giants and scale-ups.

Given our traditional strengths in key sectors such as education, agriculture, retail, finance, media, sport, healthcare and pharmaceutical, utilities and government, we need to accelerate their development into truly global digital businesses that can compete with firms from China, Asia and the USA.

Post Brexit we now have the necessary freedoms of action to enable us to achieve such an ambitious goal. The question is how to achieve a digital vision in under a decade? And how do we have > 50% of the FTSE 100 to be digital businesses, each worth $ 500 billion or more by 2030?

Join us on 26th May where we have an impressive line-up of top speakers from our government, academia and industry around digital leadership within the next ten years. The event will include a plenary session followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
