We talk to Enrique Fernandez-Pino, a CDO and an expert in developing digital strategies who has assisted some of the biggest brands in UK highstreet retail, supermarkets and the passenger transport industry across a long career. For Enrique, Digital means Human – we discuss the role of AI, the role of digital capabilities in brand perception and why the £4bn business he was CIO of was already prepared when the pandemic hit.
We’re joined by Tim Copper, an experienced business digital transformation leader who focusses on bringing the commercial and tech worlds together to create step changes in revenue growth.
