If you have not been keeping up, emerging technologies will drive the Next Economy. Which means that in the future, you’re either a digital business or a dead business.
With that said, business leaders need to keep up with the pace of technology because exponential technologies require exponential leadership.
How? Beyond blogs and podcasts to cover your heart’s desire on all tech related news and topics; there are also newsletters.
