KEYNOTE: Ethical leadership and corporate governance in the age of digitisation

While technology is rapidly evolving, legislation and compliance cannot catch up quickly enough. How can we, as business leaders, push the boundaries and advance our organisation into Industry 4.0, but remain certain that we are being ethical? Digitisation brings with it a whole new set of opportunities and risks; how do we navigate this? During this session, we will:

  • Link effective leadership to long-term sustainability;
  • Assess how to best govern evolving technology; and
  • Navigate the opportunities and risks that digitisation brings with it.
