The shift to digital – where next for business?

Watch our FutureFit masterclass video for tips and insight on taking opportunities from digitisation and AI.

At our live FutureFit event, business pioneers shared how they’re future-proofing their operations and adapting to the pace of rapid technological change.

Clare Barclay, CEO at Microsoft UK; Lord Timothy Clement-Jones, spokesperson for the Digital Economy, House of Lords; Sue Daley, Director of Technology and Innovation at techUK, and Julie Dawson, Chief Policy & Regulatory Officer at Yoti agree the future is digital. Are you ready?

Watch now for their key insights.

Here are some key takeaways on taking a more renewable-focused approach.

1. The AI era will accelerate innovation 

Tech such as AI has the potential to change the way people work, the way society runs, and the way businesses operate. How prepared are you for answering some of the big questions it poses? Do you understand the ethical implications, what skills you might need, and whether your purpose might change?

2. Consider how and where AI can help your business

As technologies such as AI evolve, there is an opportunity to explore your business mindset and establish how you might use digitisation in a more efficient and productive way. What are your plans for using AI as the world changes?

3. Stay on top of where the challenges may lie

AI could improve fraud detection and be utilised to offer protection and safeguarding through, say, protecting peoples’ identities. But it could also change corporate governance structures and be exploited by fraudsters. Could you start to look at these issues now?

4. Can you get ahead of where you want to be?

After the pandemic many businesses are thinking hard about doing things differently as ways of work have changed. Using technology and digitisation for efficiency, productivity and a more sustainable way of working could be within your grasp – is this something you’ve considered?

Tomorrow’s truly sustainable businesses will be built on the actions we take today. Discover more ideas here and watch our FutureFit masterclasses on renewable energy and purpose to hear more tips on these key business themes.
