The C-Suite Vantage Point: Digital transformation
PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

Digital transformation is imperative for organisational success. Executives must champion strategic initiatives that leverage cutting-edge technologies, fostering agility, innovation, and efficiency - and yet do so at a time of huge economic pressure.

So how does the C-Suite collaborate effectively, put technology at the heart of business decision-making and make digital, data and technology a key market differentiator? And what does that mean for the different executives sitting at the top-table?

Customer experience in a digital revolution
PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

In the post-pandemic era, employee and customer experiences are being revolutionised by flexible working, new attitudes to what constitutes a good brand or experience, and the advent of emerging technologies like AI, machine learning, and – soon – quantum computing.

With employee and customer experience pivotal to improving productivity, talent attraction and retention and ultimately top and bottom-line growth, leaders must build engagement through more personalised interactions, the seamless integration of new technologies and unparalleled, human-led experiences which help drive efficiency and business growth in the digital revolution.

PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

The relationship between IT and business is intricate and nuanced, balancing collaboration with occasional tension.

Successful partnerships hinge on aligning technological solutions with business goals. Bridging communication gaps, fostering mutual understanding, and adapting to evolving needs are crucial. When IT and business collaborate effectively, they become allies, driving innovation and organisational success.

The Future of the CFO
PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

From traditional finance stewardship to becoming strategic business partners, the role of the CFO is changing.

Today’s CFO is expected to have a steer on business decision-making, optimising operations, technology integration and risk management - while others are increasingly embedded in ESG initiatives, talent management programmes and investor relations. Some CFOs have greater ambitions of progressing to become the COO or CEO.

In this session, CFO judges discuss the evolution of the CFO role, the skills and characteristics they require of themselves and teams in a digitised world and how they engage across the C-Suite to drive business change and transformation.

Hybrid work imperfections and realities
PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

Pre-pandemic visions of the future of work have largely become reality, so what now, and what next?

Remote connectivity and collaboration, flexible working schedules, and hybrid workplace models have become integral, while organisations increasingly prioritise employee well-being and balance.

But in an age of return-to-office pressure, mass automation and a troubling job market, adaptability and resilience will be required to shape a dynamic and inclusive future of work.

Chaos and order: How to take control of a complex and evolving IT estate
Panel
ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS

The evolution of IT has been a double-edged sword for business. On the one hand, technology is now integral to almost every organisation of any sector, with CIOs and CTOs holding influential roles on company boards. On the other, however, the adoption of public cloud, SaaS applications and now AI has increased customisation and complexity for IT and security teams, who are already stretched and fast losing control and visibility over their environments.

In this Studio panel, C-suite executives discuss the critical challenges facing today's IT leaders, exploring strategies to navigate increasingly complex IT environments in growing organisations, the need for stability, scalability and security, and how leading CIOs, CTOs and CISOs can unpick complexity and streamline IT operations to drive business innovation.

PANEL

The talent landscape faces challenges in meeting the demand for digital, data, and technology expertise. The pressing need for skilled professionals outpaces the available workforce, creating a scarcity.

What ubiquitous technology means for digital leaders
Panel
Abbey Road Studios

The democratisation of technology poses challenges and opportunities for digital leaders, many of whom are already fighting for greater accountability and influence, yet struggling to get their arms around a growing technology estate.

In a world where the consumerisation of IT has made technology openly accessible, and where technology budgets increasingly fall into line-of-business departments, what next for the career of a digital leader?

Data: Do's and Don'ts
Panel
Abbey Road Studios
Data Do's and Don'ts guide responsible data management. Do prioritise security, ethical use, and compliance with regulations. Do ensure data accuracy, quality, and accessibility. Don't overlook privacy concerns or neglect data governance. Don't collect unnecessary data or share sensitive information indiscriminately. Strategic adherence to these principles is key for fostering trust and mitigating risks.

Keeping pace with AI: Risk vs reward
Panel
Abbey Road Studios

The rise of artificial intelligence offers humanity almost unfathomable opportunities and challenges in equal measure - from the potential to transform industries, streamline processes, and enhance decision-making, through to the dilemmas surrounding data privacy, security, bias, and societal impact.

However, as these technologies gain wider adoption, new risks have surfaced around information governance, cyber attacks, privacy and regulatory compliance, especially for multinational corporations navigating regional nuances. Add in the fact that most data is unstructured, and you’re looking at more risks across siloed apps, multiple vendors, and complicated tech stacks.

In this session, technology executives explore keeping pace with change in the AI market, balancing innovation with risk management and how to safely scale beyond pilot projects.

The sustainability vacuum: Is the green agenda falling behind?
PANEL
Abbey Road Studios

Amidst the glamour for Generative AI, sustainability is at risk of falling off the boardroom’s agenda. ESG has become a complex and sometimes politicised business strategy, while sustainability’s impact has been shrouded by issues over carbon emissions visibility, supply chain transparency and the question of sustainability leadership responsibility from the C-Suite down. In this session, tech executives gather to confront the "sustainability vacuum," questioning whether the green agenda is lagging behind the exploration for new technologies, exploring the complexities of environmental responsibility, and how technological innovation can intersect with ecological stewardship.

From projects to products: The business shift
Panel
Abbey Road Studios

In today’s post-pandemic, digital age, organisations are increasingly moving away from project-led to product-centric strategies that emphasise the values of agile development, user-centric design, and cross-functional teams that are better equipped to accelerate product delivery.

In this session, we discuss how, by becoming product-led, businesses are better able to adapt to market needs and drive customer satisfaction and growth through continuous innovation and adaptation. The conversation will also share insights tailored for CIOs and CTOs on how to optimise tech stacks, foster cross-functional collaboration, and embrace agile methodologies.

Productive Innovation: What we Do (and Don’t) Understand about Today’s Workforce
Panel
Abbey Road Studios

Digital maturity is no yardstick for predicting genAI experimentation. Business sector, size and region still play their part, too, but team dynamics, psychological safety, hybrid work and technocentric cheerleaders are now reported as significant factors. This new, disparate and highly subjective set of factors may explain why it is still hard to understand how genAI is improving business performance, innovation or job satisfaction. Still, pioneer companies (those which nimbly experiment with genAI) will be more likely to capitalise on automation as BAU efficiency gains, better identify skills gaps and reorganise the business to capture market share, create new revenue streams, and, ultimately, positively impact the bottom line.

 

A highly informative Food for Lunch on the topic informed HotTopics and Elsewhen of executive’s expectations for the coming year, MVP use case examples, and why we’re only bound by our (lack of) imagination. To continue the transparent conversation, what should leaders do to broaden their imaginations and make better use of genAI? And what structures need to be evolved to continually translate this to value-add work?

CIO x CISO: Risk, security and career vulnerabilities
Executive Briefing
Abbey Road Studios

In the fast-moving world of cybersecurity, CIOs and CISOs find themselves in a relentless race to keep up with nefarious actors and a record-number of attacks, but also the continued technological innovation of their own organisations and a slew of new regulatory requirements. Despite this endeavour, research shows that data breaches impacted nearly 294 million people in 2023, with an average breach cost of over $4m. Data breaches continue to lead to customer mistrust, brand reputation damage and a loss of revenue. For the CISO, in particular, such incidents (remediated or otherwise) often lead to burnout, shorter tenures and even criminal convictions. In this executive briefing at The Studio, in partnership with Rapid7, we bring technology and security leaders together to discuss common security challenges, why cybersecurity is increasingly a team sport, get the Rapid7 Labs view on how to keep pace with an evolving threat landscape, and discuss the criticality of real-time endpoint and network visibility, actionable intelligence and risk prioritisation. Only by doing this, can CIOs and CISOs thrive and survive in an age of heightened personal and business risk.
