Join us at Barnsley’s DMC as we bring together a panel of female leaders from the region’s digital industries for a morning of discussions on how to make the most of digital innovation.

With the increasing ubiquity of artificial intelligence (AI) and other digital technologies, we’re living through a period of unprecedented and rapid change. While this transformation may bring opportunities for improved productivity and economic growth, it can sometimes feel overwhelming.

That’s why we’ve assembled a panel of inspirational digital innovators to share their considerable expertise and answer any questions you may have. With discussion topics including AI, data utilisation, funding opportunities and the future of digital innovation, the wide-ranging session will offer plenty of food for thought.

We hope to see you on 19th March for a morning of networking and insightful conversation over breakfast and refreshments.
