Cosmic are delighted to be running a Digital Leadership Programme for Social Enterprises in 2018 and invite people in senior leadership roles in established social enterprises to find out more and sign up.
Why Digital Leadership (DL)? The Social Enterprise UK 2017 “State of the Sector” survey revealed that “A large proportion (of social enterprises) are still not confident in making effective use of available technology, and that 43% consider their own digital skills average or below – a rise since 2015”. Looking more widely, Cisco (multinational tech leader) predicts that “More than one-third of businesses today will not survive the next 10 years. The only ones that will survive will turn their companies into digital versions of themselves.” Sounds daunting but new technologies can also present great opportunities, in terms of how we plan and deliver services, communicate with customers and stakeholders, manage our business and, ultimately, deliver social impact.
Digital innovations and their impact on businesses are around us every day. We recognise how swiftly the advent of big data and analytics, cloud computing, social media, the Internet of Things and mobile can overturn conventional ways of doing business. But where to start?

Investing in digital skills is a must for every business at this time, but many businesses are yet to address this issue at senior management and Board levels. Learning how to utilise digital in your business has the potential to raise your competitive edge, increase staff satisfaction and raise productivity levels too. This approach, we believe is the single most efficient way to become a digital leader and to fast track your knowledge.
