About Spark Sessions

With a challenging economic environment, the digitisation of your business is more important than ever – but it’s often hard to know what the right approach is.

Digital change is now key in responding to the interruption of work and business brought on by the pandemic and other economic pressures.

That’s why we’ve introduced our newly developed Spark Sessions on digital change. Building on the insight of a technology expert, and with the guidance of a session facilitator, you’ll be part of a small group of business leaders from companies of a similar size – brought together in a relaxed, informal and highly valuable format. Together, you’ll discuss the three largest barriers to digitisation that business leaders most often encounter:

  • Understanding and creating a digital strategy for your business 
  • Skills needed for successful digital change
  • Good leadership and management practices to support digital change 

What’s the risk in not digitising successfully? The statistics tell the story:

18% – The average improvement in sales per employee over three years for firms that use a CRM system

25% – The average productivity benefit for companies using two or more business organisation technologies, such as project management software

12% – The average improvement in sales per employee over three years for businesses that use a digital accounting system

How your business will progress after attending Spark Sessions

By collaborating and discussing challenges together in the presence of an expert and with fellow business leader peers, you'll finish your Spark Sessions experience with the knowledge needed to:

  • Improve productivity through the automation of key business tasks
  • Drive cost savings and produce revenue growth
  • Improve customer experience and customer insights
  • Attract and retain talent
  • Refine your operating model
  • Differentiate your business offering from your competitors
  • Boost business resilience during challenging economic environments
