The Digital Leaders Lab:
A leadership conversation about delivering value from your technology investment

Welcome to the Digital Leaders Lab 2019, a series of monthly breakfast sessions designed to enhance the personal effectiveness and strategic relevance of IT leaders in the digital age. This year our focus will be on developing great digital leaders who deliver value to their organisations through technology. The format of each session will be a short presentation on the chosen topic followed by a lean coffee style discussion giving you plenty of opportunity to raise and engage on the questions you are seeking answers to. We have some great topics lined up for discussion this year but as per previous breakfast sessions we will also be seeking your input on what is topical for you.

We're kicking off 2019 with a topic we're sure is on everyone's agenda:
Creating Your Digital Strategy - How to Get Started

Perhaps you are charged with creating or required to have input into your organisation's digital strategy? Or perhaps you are just interested in understanding what good practice in this field looks like. Come along and learn about the foundations that are required in order to create an effective digital strategy, one that will enable you to deliver true value to your organisation.

A full buffet breakfast will be served. Please e-mail with any dietary requirements.

About The Speaker: Owen McCall

It seems that everyone these days believes in the power of technology to transform. Believing in the power of IT to transform is one thing, actually making it happen however, is an entirely different matter. The road to fulfilling IT's potential to transform our organisations is more often a road to failure than it is a road to success. Just look at the statistics. Most pundits agree that 70+% of IT enabled change programmes fail.

As a lover of technology and a believer in technology's potential to transform, Owen finds statistics like this very frustrating. As a result he now dedicates his time to supporting organisations to implement better ways to deliver change and to fulfill on technology's transformative power.

Owen is the author of High-Performance IT, a collection of short stories and unique IP that provides insights into IT leadership and delivering on the promise of technology. Owen is also a qualified accountant and was previously a partner in Deloitte Consulting where for several years he led Deloitte's Australasian outsourcing business before returning to New Zealand to take up the position of CIO of The Warehouse Group. In addition to running his practice Owen is a regular blogger and contributor to CIO and iStart publications and is sought after as both an event speaker and judge of industry awards including CIO 100 and the NZ Hi Tech Awards.
