From ‘Smart’ to ‘Future-Ready’ Cities –Panel: What does it take to embrace future-ready city vision?

Hosted by Cognizant Worldwide Limited

Join us in person for an exciting and thought-provoking panel discussion on what will it take to truly embrace future-ready city vision with contribution from key council members of smart cities featured in the IWD smart city profile – Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield, amongst others and our very own thought leader Eduardo Plastino, moderating the panel is Sarah Tulip, Leeds Digital Facilitator of the Year 2023 and head of Cognizant’s delivery center in Leeds.

The panel will:

1. Debate and validate the findings of Cognizant’ Future-Ready City thought leadership
2. Deliberate on how can city ambitions support the journey to future-readiness and resilience in light of macroeconomic and social uncertainties
2. Outline the gaps that exist and the frameworks that can allow us to move past the constraints in the ecosystem and across to create collaborative yet sustainable future-ready cities.

A unique opportunity to be part of the journey and network over drinks with likeminded peers across businesses and communities. Register now!
