On 24 October 2018, Harvey Nash launched the results of its annual Technology Survey at Level39 in Canary Wharf, London. Completed by over 2,000 technology and business leaders, the report is a comprehensive study of the most significant global technology trends and challenges facing businesses in 2019.
Scott Communications co-founder Tony Scott was one of those invited to participate in the on-stage panel, which was chaired by technology podcast founder David Savage. Also appearing on the panel were:
In a well-attended evening of discussion and networking, and with the distraction of a stunning sunset over the City of London visible from the Level39 office high up in One Canada Square, the event was a great opportunity for all present to discuss the key themes of the survey results. These included the impacts of artificial intelligence (AI) on business and society at large, why innovation is failing in many organisations and whether there is a digital leadership crisis impacting the IT industry.
‘The breadth and depth of questions asked from the floor, and in the networking session afterwards, showed how relevant the survey findings are to businesses today. But what struck me most was that cultural, organisational and human concerns around technology and digital disruption were of equal, if not greater, interest to many of those present.’
