Bill Owens, Managing Director of Veracity, is committed to raising digital literacy levels of business leaders across Australia.
Veracity has advised top Queensland companies such as HOTA, Home of the Arts and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra on digital transformation and Bill says today’s leaders must have the ability to understand how technology will impact the businesses they lead – now and in the future.
In a comprehensive study of over 1,200 publicly traded companies over US $1 billion, businesses with digitally savvy board members significantly outperformed others on key metrics such as revenue growth, return on assets, and market cap growth. In a study of over 5,000 global leaders, 36% of respondents reported that they struggled to keep on top of new technologies.
Bill, who’s equipped with decades of experience in global business consulting and technology, says the digital divide in the leadership community is alarming and is determined to help leaders feel at ease discussing and making decisions about tech and IT.
Bill is sharing his knowledge in the new Digital Literacy for Leaders series.
