Learn and Solve with PwC: Digital accelerators

At our September Learn and Solve event, we were joined by Sunil Pater, Partner and Chief Data Officer at PwC. He discussed why and how they developed their Digital Accelerators programme to improve digital confidence and capability across their workforce – and the impact it had on the organisation. 

Hosted by Paul Fleming, Membership and Community Manager at FutureDotNow, the session covered:

  • How the programme grew out of a shortage of skills in the marketplace and a desire to develop existing staff.
  • The beginnings of the programme in the form of a competition that identified the right people to become Digital Accelerators
  • How the impact of Digital Accelerators grew beyond the initial remit, impacting the whole organisation.
  • Just what difference the programme made to employees and PwC as a business.

[*NB. The Learn and Solve was delayed to October 6 to avoid the period of official mourning following the passing Her Majesty The Queen.]

We host Learn and solve events because, when it comes to closing the digital skills gap, working together is crucial and collaboration is the key. By learning from each other what works (and what doesn’t) we can find better solutions, faster. None of us can solve this problem alone.
