Future proof your business – Getting the basics right

Future proof your business – Getting the basics right

Through a series of highly interactive sessions, PEX Europe Spring 2018 offered the opportunity to learn, share and challenge everything you need to be a business of the future, with leading industry peers.

Bryan Oak, COO, led a workshop focusing on ‘getting the basics right’ before starting an end-to-end process transformation.

In this blog we highlight the key takeaways from the day as a recap for those that attended and the main learnings for those that didn’t.

Our visual scribe provided us with a creative illustration of our workshop.
