About Digital Drop-Ins (DDIs)
The Digital Strategies’ DDI videoconference series allows our MBA Fellows the chance to have intimate conversations with key technology leaders. Hour-long private sessions focus on a particular topic or range of topics of interest to the fellows, and enable the small group to participate in an engaging discussion about a key element of technology and how it impacts or drives corporate strategy from the perspective of the guest speaker. Fellows come away from each Digital Drop-In with a clearer sense of each guest’s perspective on an issue or topic impacting his or her enterprise in a significant way.
