Technology in governance – A UK Student Forum event

A free UK Student Forum Event, held on Wednesday 11 December 2019 at 6pm


The UK Student Forum is hosting its latest event for junior governance professionals. This provides a great opportunity to network with peers, hear from industry experts and build knowledge.

New technologies have appeared in the workplace that seemed impossible just a short time ago. Once the mere thought of robotics, machine learning or artificial intelligence seemed to be the stuff of science fiction. Yet those very technologies are now changing the way that we do business and, therefore, changing our working lives. So how can governance professionals embrace these new technologies?

Join us to learn about some of the technologies governance professionals at all levels are embracing and how you can prepare to and embrace technology in your day to day to further progress your career and futureproof your department.

At this event, you will hear from a range of speakers, with a variety of perspectives, providing a broader insight into technology in governance.
