But how many of us are using digital to help shift our thinking, behaviours and ways of working to challenge how we do things, to create leaders for a digital age and to focus on enhancing the workforce (rather than replacing them) to enable them to be better at what they do?

Through provision of new world tools and an immersive virtual environment, teams have shifted behaviours and old world practices (meetings, papers, emails) to properly collaborate, co-produce and deliver solutions together while foregoing meetings, papers and emails.

Recently Tammy has become a freelancer enabling her to share the learning and new world approaches needed within organisations who are serious about embracing digital working
