FODO Host Professional Bodies Digital Leadership Summit

Tickets available for roundtable summit examining the purpose of professional bodies in the ‘Post-digital Age’

The Federation of Opticians will host the meeting this November 18 at 199 Gloucester Terrace, welcoming digital leaders and representatives from major UK membership organisations to discuss what the future holds for professional representative bodies in an age of technological disruption.

Run by the business agency Atmosphere, the breakfast session will examine how these bodies can adapt to a proliferation of new digital technologies by becoming ‘more human’ rather than ‘more digital’. Participants will discuss how, in an immersive tech world full of low-cost digital tools, members are looking for more relevant relationships with their professional organisations that are focused on driving meaningful change.

David HewlettOptical Confederation member and FODO and NCHA chief executive, David Hewlett said: “Moving with the times and indeed being ahead of  them is something we pride ourselves on.  The digital revolution is here to stay and moving at a pace that makes Moore’s Law seem an understatement.   It will affect all our lives as the Foresight Project Report and the recent College seminar have shown.   It is a pleasure therefore to host an Atmosphere event and learn from other sectors.   If successful we will consider approaching Atmosphere to run a session for our members”.
