 The key topics to be discussed at the Digital Workplace Directors Forum include:

• The impact on employee and customer engagement
• The evolution of new technologies including robotics and artificial intelligence
• Employee communication, collaboration and value creation
• Designing employee experiences in the Digital Workplace
• Digital Workplace applications, solutions and innovations
