Skills Matter

Technologists must change the way they develop products, then lead. They must allay growing public anxiety on what they do and why.

Nik and Chris addressed highly skilled and diverse technologists at Skills Matter, London, in a dynamic, interactive, brainstorming session as part of the Leadership Matters series.

They highlighted how booming technologies like robotics and AI are accelerating at such a speed that leadership is struggling to cope with new unthinkables which are now unpalatables. In the cabaret set-up they urged technologists to think far more radically and transform their organisational leadership.
