About the Conference
The future is a digital world: for combatting declining productivity, fostering innovation, finding new markets and new routes to market.
Whether it is cognitive computing or contracts held in the blockchain, smart platforms or agility enablers, digital should be a priority for all enterprises.
How digitally mature are your clients? And what can you do differently to compete in a digital world? But what if there’s more to Big Data than just volume? And what about digital security, company culture or infrastructure limitations? What even is a smart contract?

The EBRD, with funding from the European Union under the EU Initiative for Financial Inclusion, believes strongly in assisting consultants to build their competencies, exposure and network so they can provide high quality services that the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector is ready to pay for long into the future.
