A Leader’s Course on
Artificial Intelligence

Delivered On-Premise
Strategic Executives – Leverage The Power of AI

This is not an IT course – this is a leadership course
The course coaches leaders in how to create new and sustaining competitive advantage
in the digital economy leveraging AI and how it will fundamentally change operations.


AI is radically different to all other emerging technologies. It has the power to massively change how an organisation functions and competes. Its true value can only be unleashed when the leadership gives strong direction on how to leverage this opportunity. AI won’t replace business leaders, but business leaders who understand AI will replace those that don’t.


If you keep hearing about AI from a technical perspective you’re missing the point. It’s only of value when the leadership ask the right questions that stimulate innovation and radical change. This course will stimulate your thinking in the right direction giving you the clarity and confidence to take the next steps.


Understanding AI from a leader’s perspective and the practical, data-driven methods to identify and quantify opportunities that leverage artificial intelligence to create competitive advantage and radically change how your business operates.


Understanding how to extract business value from AI, using data to find opportunities that leverages it and practical workshops to explore and experiment with how these can be used in new, innovative ways.
