Digital Transformation Leadership

Cultivate a network that is built on mutual professional aspirations and personal ventures with other senior executives.

This confidential peer group brings together business executives that lead digital transformation in their organisations. These senior executives collectively discuss transformation strategy, best practices, people, and technology issues, and get advice from peers as a sounding board on their specific challenges.  

Digital Transformation leaders have an incredibly difficult challenge in moving their organisations forward in the digital age. Our members come from large global MNCs as well as from home grown Asia focused medium-sized companies. We encourage diversity and so you will find members coming from a wide range of industries including financial services, manufacturing, healthcare and life sciences, technology, and professional services to name a few.

As there is no standard roadmap for excellence in digital transformation, this is purpose-built peer group that brings together the right people who can support each other to discover excellence together.

The current key topics that are being explored during our meetings, and we regularly seek our members’ input to flex and change these as situations change:
  • Positioning your organisation amid rising global complexity
  • Building a flexible communications department to meet wide organisational demands
  • Making your organisation stand out in a crowded field
  • Building influential and lasting media relationships
  • Internal communication in the hybrid organisation
  • Communicating a mission and vision that people believe in
  • Communications in a crisis
  • Content management (marriage between content and marketing)
  • Role of communication (internal and external) in change
  • Internal branding (employee branding / journey)

        As a member of EGN, you get direct access to Top Executives, Business Leaders and Specialists in most parts of the world via our online Members’ Universe where you can ask questions, join debates and network with more than 15,000 other members.

        Your personal EGN group represents a confidential forum where all ideas and challenges can be discussed with peers at your own, professional level. To ensure confidentiality, no competitors or significant customer relationships are allowed in the same group.

        All our peer groups are managed by a professional and experienced EGN Chair, who facilitates and mentors the peer groups, ensures output both at and between meetings and focuses on your professional and managerial development.

        We also offer events and seminars, networking tours, an Between Jobs Scheme, mentoring programmes, CEO coaching and much more.

        How do I become a member?

        You can apply for membership by filling out this form


        When we have received your application, you will be contacted by a Network Advisor for a more in-depth interview to find the right peer group for your managerial level and/or professional need.

        All candidates must be approved by both the Chair and specific peer group members before joining a group. This is done both to match relevant peers and also to avoid private friends, customer relationships and competitors being placed together in the same network group and to help facilitate honest and fruitful discussions.
