Riding the Wave of Change: Driving Continuous Cross-Functional Transformation to Support Business Continuity and Recovery Post-Crisis in an Era of Digital Innovation


The impact and disruption of Covid19 saw the critical need for companies to adapt and transform the way they operate, to ensure not only success, but survival short and long term. The transformation practitioner has been at the heart of this work redefining road maps to ensure agility and joint vision. However, the ongoing challenge remains of embedding transformation into business strategy and increasing the influence of transformation on business outcomes.

After the success of the inaugural CTO summit in 2019, we are returning with the 2nd edition on the 17th February 2021 over a digital platform!

The event will explore critical thinking, case studies and success stories across key themes, including:


  1. Progressing the transformation practice up the value curve and finding your place in a state of hyper-change 
  2. The role of transformation in crisis response and recovery 
  3. Embedding whole of business transformation initiatives which align with business objectives
  4. Striking the balance between driving innovation to futureproof business, and supporting the BCP post-crisis.
  5. Dos and Don’ts of the CTO role
