The nearer the top of an organisation you are, the harder it is to find safe spaces to have meaningful conversations about the challenges you face. That’s why our Directors’ Dinners exist. They are specifically designed for the leaders of brands, digital and tech companies to share ideas and experiences, overcome challenges and, perhaps, arrange collaborations. The food is always spectacular too.
Our next Directors’ Dinner is on 21 November at Quo Vadis in Soho and we’ll be joined by two of BIMA’s council chairs who will be your hosts for the evening and happy to talk tech, digital and education.:
* IBM’s Dan Bailey, chair of our Tech Council
* Tiffany St James, CEO at Transmute Worldwide, chair of BIMA’s University Council
