Eventbrite - Breaking down the barriers to digital innovation

The journey to digital “innovation” can be seen as a major challenge for product and digital teams across large, corporate organisations. Traditional mindsets, disconnected senior stakeholders, siloed teams, blocked innovation funds and slowed down (or halted) progress are just some of the barriers faced when on the mission to delivering your next big digital product offering or unlocking that next vital digital revenue stream.

The passion may be fiery within your team, so how do you then bridge the gap between the vision of where you need to be and the reality of getting there?

Join us on Wednesday 4th October for this one-off session, where digital leaders share their real accounts and experiences of reaching that point of digital “innovation” within their teams, organisations and product offerings, as well as uncovering techniques for you to apply in achieving this within your own organisation.

Who is this event for?

This event is for:

  • Directors / Heads of Innovation and Change
  • Directors / Heads of Product
  • Directors / Heads of Digital
  • Product Owners / Product Managers
