What keeps CEOs up at night in a complex and volatile business landscape? Business strategy requires more nuanced thinking than ever before. That's our focus in the episode of the Dimension Data Tech Exchange podcast titled How digital resilience will shape the future.
We speak to Alan Turnley-Jones, CEO of Dimension Data Middle East and Africa, about what he's learned from five months of engagements with other business leaders.
This includes areas of concern such as cybersecurity – a big challenge for the African continent – and energy supply, an issue which has been affected globally by the conflict in Ukraine but has escalated in South Africa in the past year.
Going into 2023, Alan also gives advice to CEOs as they grapple with issues such as hybrid working while trying to deliver the best service possible to their clients.
