Here’s what participants say about #DigLitBootcamp last year:

You did a great job organising the Digital Bootcamp. I learnt a lot of useful information and it expanded my understanding of many issues on the digital front.

Regarding the participation in the #DigLitBootcamp, I have learned a lot of new things. Despite the fact that I was quite familiar with some topics, still there were very interesting tools and digital transformation methodologies presented on the webinars. Just to mention an example, Bernard’s (Bernard Golko) webinars were really outstanding, of a very high quality, providing good information and guidelines for digital transformation. Lastly, these webinars, turned out to be even more valuable, given the events of 2020, with the worldwide pandemic still ongoing.

Leaders in the Digital Era – become one of them!

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the fact that more and more employees work remotely. They have been suddenly forced to deal with work challenges in a time of volatility, anxiety, fast-changing circumstances and many uncontrolled risks.

This requires that leaders improve skills like emotional intelligence, managing generational differences, and build an organizational culture that embraces fast-changing consumers’ preferences and trends, driven by accelerating technology.
