About the Event:

Steve Dalgleish - What’s tech got to do with it? How technology can assist the evolution of your practice

Like it or not, technology is here to stay. How we choose to engage with it determines the value our firms can leverage and while it may seem daunting, the entry points may be lower than you think. From strategic programmes to tactical deployments right through to small incremental improvements, the key approaches are the same.
