The discipline of Business Relationship Management (BRM) is changing.  Traditional BRMs need to add Digital Business Leadership (DBL) skills into their toolkit to remain successful in today’s increasingly digital world.

This half-day conference will showcase LEF thinking on how to define and create value by combining technology and business strategies, and discuss the implications of digital for the organization.

  2. Become Digital Disruptors.  This includes how to create a digital matrix for your industry and enterprise, what actions a DBL should take once they have the matrix and what skills are required to work in the matrix.
  3. Be personally powerful and influence stakeholders.  This includes how to communicate more clearly with non IT stakeholders, have richer and more business focused conversations, use personality type to influence senior leaders and how to deal with different national cultures and organizational politics.
