About the Event​

As technology evolves, the opportunity for organisations to deliver sustainable value through data has become a growing concern for business leaders. How do we maximise the benefit to our organisations of new tools, and how do we avoid repeating the failures of previous cycles of technology-enabled, data-fuelled transformation?

Join Castlebridge and our panel of speakers and panellists in Wexford for a unique event addressing four key strategic themes for leaders in organisations who are struggling to develop realistic roadmaps for sustainable change against a backdrop of rapid evolution in promised capabilities.
