The Open University and Be the Business

Thursday 3 June, 10:00-11:00am : Free online event

New research from The Open University and Be the Business explores the skills necessary to encourage the successful adoption of technology in SMEs. A new report, Skills for Success: Supporting business leaders with digital adoption, is due out in June and explores the attitudes of small and medium-sized business leaders when it comes to digital adoption in the context of Covid-19, as well as the skills gaps that exist at both a leadership and employee level. It also examines the learning attitudes and preferences of leaders, enabling the digital skills ecosystem to better support them on the path to effectively implementing and using technologies within their businesses.

In this webinar, the findings of the report are discussed by Anthony Impey, CEO of Be the Business and Jane Dickinson, Digital Skills Lead at The Open University. They will be joined by SME business leaders who will share best practice – explaining how they are developing their managers and leaders and investing in digital skills throughout the whole team to drive successful digital adoption and business success.
