Date: Wednesday 26 April 2017
Location: Arnolfini, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol, BS1 4QA

In the new digital reality, once unimagined economic resources have become the norm. This event considered what we need to know about the modern world, asking questions such as: 

What can we know about the modern economy?
What digital skills will my employees need in future?
What are the digital challenges and opportunities facing productivity and innovation in my business?
What does the digital economy mean to my business?


This event was the first in a new series of business breakfasts aimed at sharing knowledge about the modern economy and the way it affects us.
