As we adjust to exponential digital change, a new form of Adaptive Leadership is needed. Designed by, and delivered with, the Australian Graduate School of Management at UNSW, this program is for those senior professionals seeking to shift the digital dial in, and for their business.

What's happening?

#1: November DX Program Meet Ups

Be a part of the "Enabling Digital Transformation" Meet Ups in November, including insights into how you can lead digital change in your organisation AND a special look at applications of Digital Humans

#2: Join the Social Learning Platform

The DX Program Summit & Masterclasses are still available in digital form:

Access the UNSW & Accelerate Social Learning Platform to find recordings of the DX Program events, plus the DX Masterclasses given in Sydney and Auckland. The Platform also hosts a wide range of other Digital Leadership content such as a Digital Maturity questionnaire so you can evaluate how ready you or your organisation are for 'going Digital'. 

One of the key elements of the Social Learning Platform is that it connects you directly with teachers and peers who are all at different stages of their Digital Leadership journey - and with whom you can collaborate and engage with as you learn.

See the information below to understand more about the content and speakers whose content will be on the platform and with whom you will be able to interact.

#3: Watch the video stream of the Auckland DX Program Summit in September.

The Kordia Live team was hard at work delivering a live stream of the DX Summit in Auckland to the APAC region (and rest of the world) on Thursday 26 September. You can see evidence of this in their command center in the bottom right of the adjacent photo! 

Their fantastic work means the DX Program was viewed around the world, including as far afield as Argentina and South-east Asia.

You can still view a copy of the stream on-demand. Click the button below to be taken to the DX Program stream.
