Entrepreneurship Panel Event: The AI Advantage

“…in a rapidly emerging AI economy, organisations will be split into two groups: those who are good at AI and those who are bad at business

Artificial Intelligence is a tidal wave of tech that is transforming industries. As such, we were delighted to welcome 3 outstanding speakers for our May 2024 event. Our Moderator Sam Steele hosted our guest speakers and moderated an outstanding discussion and open forum.

Every entrepreneur needs to grasp both what’s at stake and the new horizon of possibilities.  

The WCIT Livery Hall was once again close to capacity with Members and Non-Members and the buzz in the room following the discussion, was testament to the excellent feedback from all of the attendees. Our elite panel discussion with three AI thought leaders, offered invaluable and tangible insights into both the high impact opportunities and the more alarming implications of AI adoption that we face.

The key focus was the recommendations to utilise Gen AI to drive productivity and efficiency gains, augmenting the human interactions to benefit your business and use AI to help solve business problems and drive growth. Indeed, today only 9% of businesses in the UK are ready and actively utilising the benefits of AI technology and that will naturally grow, as the technology matures and evolves through innovative new releases and technical advances

Our acclaimed speaker line up featured AI thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and policy makers
