Talent Fest 2020: Skills Summit

In April, we ran our virtual Talent Fest 2020: Skills Summit to explore, discuss and debate what 21st-century leadership means for our sector.

With thought-provoking online talks from renowned digital leaders, the day offered members the chance to gain practical takeaways that they could implement within their business and own personal leadership development.

Below you will find all the great content you can still benefit from.
