NFP Digital Transformation Forum 2019

Leading digital change

Tuesday 2 April and Master Class 3 April - Auckland

The communities that we work within are changing quickly. The nature of their need and how we need to support them is dynamic. Remaining relevant requires us to improve our organisations agility to continue serving the needs and aspirations of our clients. Technology is a tool with the potential to build capability and services....

Improving the capability uplift of an organisation requires new ways of working, innovation and new technology. In other words: Digital Transformation.

Unfortunately, 80% of digital transformation projects which take a technology-first approach fail. The forum will therefore not only look at technology initiatives, it mainly focuses on the changes the leadership team needs to take, make and showcase. This Forum will show you how technology can be part of the foundation of successfully meeting your Mission Goals and impact in New Zealand's communities.

The NFP Digital Transformation Forum will bring leaders from a variety of sectors together to identify opportunities to inspire and lead digital change. 

4 themes of the NFP Digital Transformation Forum

  1. Leading Digital Change
  2. Inspirational Leadership & Change Management 
  3. Evolution & Revolution
  4. Customer Experience & Service Design
