The panel offers participants the opportunity to ask real businesses about their reasons for expanding their digital tools and presence, what they have learned from this experience, how it has made their businesses more resilient, and the impacts their digital improvements have had on their business. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions, ambition, and their business cards.
