It was one of the first calls I received, on the first business day back from the festivities of the new year. The person on the line was really fired up—eager to charge ahead. The topic, how to accelerate the momentum of our consulting rebranding in a year that — thanks to Omicron, the energy pricing crisis, ‘partygate,’ and I must sadly include the demise of Blackberry — could easily feel like an extension of last year’s slog of supply chain snarls, operations chaos and endless VCs.

A key focus in financial services this year has been agile transformation and the challenges that come with it. To address some of the myths surrounding agile and offer advice to organisations looking to carry out transformation programmes, Definia held a webinar on making agile work for your organisation. Grainne Costello, Strategic Account Manager, and Zak Meziane, agile transformation and leadership coach, were joined by leading financial services professionals from across our network.

People often talk about the size and breadth of their network, but it’s not about how many people you know, or even about the skills in your network. It’s about how you harness the talent in your network and mobilise the right people at the right times for the right projects.

During the COVID-19 crisis, businesses across the globe have been forced to do things very differently, making quick decisions and even transforming their entire organisations within a matter of days. With many now thinking about how they can permanently implement these new ways of working into their organisations, Investigo hosted a roundtable discussion on Tuesday 5th May, centred on the new normal and relaunching business critical programmes in a remote environment. Hosted by our Director Marie Cuffaro and Cisco’s Group CIO Jacqui Guichelaar, the event brought together business leaders from across our network.
