Digital transformation can seem overwhelming, I know.
Especially when the way it currently looks for you is ANYTHING but easy.
If you’re being honest, it feels like you're facing a long uphill battle.
You know you need to understand how digital technology can improve your business or you’re going to be left behind. But, you're worried you’ll never figure it out. Maybe waiting is the answer. Spoiler: it’s not.
You’ve spent a lot of time reading the latest reports, but you still don’t really know what all of the lingo means. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Industry 4.0, AI. There are so many buzzwords flying around, but you still don’t quite get how any of this will actually help YOUR business.
You’re up for introducing new digital tools, but you're anxious about how your employees will react. They’re so stuck in their ways, it’ll never go down well!
You’re already over stretched in terms of time and resources, how can you be certain you’ll have the skills to handle digital transformation anyway.
You just want to know how on earth any of this stuff is going to actually make your business more money. Why can't a single person answer your ROI questions without looking sheepish?!?
Let’s face it. You’ve been trying to piece together bits and pieces of information from all over the place, but it hasn’t helped you one little bit.
You’re starting to just give up altogether because it’s looking like it’s just too COMPLICATED. I know because I see my clients struggle with this over and over again, which is why I’m so excited to bring all of my expert solutions to YOU for a fraction of the cost.

But with Charlotte's help we were able to jump in, redefine our problems and truly think outside the box, while simultaneously prioritizing our solutions and innovating beyond our initial ideas. The structure Charlotte provided allowed the team to simply focus on brainstorming, where no idea was a bad one.

Why Digital Leadership Academy? Why now?
We are currently in a very important time in history for the manufacturing industry. The rise of new technologies, plus macro-economic factors such as Brexit and Covid19 are accelerating innovation. This means that those that chose to adopt digital technologies and innovate will thrive at exponential rates, while those that don’t are destined to be desolate.
I have seen first-hand the phenomenal impact that a well constructed digital transformation strategy can have on a company's ability to overcome challenges and to grow, but I also know that expensive strategy consulting isn’t in everyone’s budget. Sometimes we need that money to invest in the technology itself.
That’s why I have created Digital Leadership Academy, so that you have access to the most up to date business consulting, regardless of where you’re at in your business. And, so that you can easily improve your own skills as a leader in the process!
83% of manufacturing leaders say that “Industry 4.0 is “extremely or very important” to their companies (Are you keeping up?)
Digital Leadership Academy will take you...
Wondering what on earth all of this digital transformation, Industry 4.0, Internet of things and other new fangled tech stuff really means for the future of your business…
Being worried that by not innovating that you’ll get left behind, but being scared that if you do, your employees will completely revolt!
Panicking that you should be doing something with all of the “valuable” data that you apparently have in your business, but not knowing where to start…
Not having the foggiest idea how innovative digital technologies can actually improve your bottom line, without breaking the bank!
Being able to competently talk about new digital technologies, so that you can direct your team when and where they need it the most.
Knowing that you have a proven technology adoption plan in place, that makes your employees excited and not scared about change.
Feeling certain that you have bespoke digital transformation roadmap, to drive your business forward and keep pace with the competition!
Being able to make informed, strategic business decisions around new technology, feeling confident that you're putting your money in the right places!
Let's talk value...

Frequently asked questions
Is this course really for me?
This course is for you if you're tired of worrying whether what you're doing is really enough to make your manufactruing SME resilient in the future. If 2020 taught us anything, it's that we can't just sit around waiting and hoping that everything will be okay.

Even as new content is added and chages are made in line with industry advancements and technology trends. Its all yours, FOREVER!
What's the difference between this and all of the other programmes out there?
Well, the number one differentiator is that I give it to you straight. You're already highly capable of leadign your business, you don't need to be spoken to like an idiot when it comes to technology! I don't use unnecessary jargon to discuss anything. I simply use everyday languauge to talk about technology and what it means for your business.
What if I fall behind?
There's no such thing as falling 'behind' when it comes to educating yourself! The only time you're ever behind is when you're not taking action. Because that's when everyone else is overtaking you! (So best to get started quickly!)
How much time do I need to dedicate to this to see results?
You're busy, I get it. That's why the course is self-paced. This means that you can put in as much, or as little time as you have availible and still see results. I've kept the modules short, snappy and to the point so that you can discover what you need quickly without messing around. I'd say that you want to allocate 2-3 hours a week per module.

Sure! Industrial Digital Leadership Academy is the step-by-step method that is applied by the most successful business consultancies. I have personally used this framework to help my clients build digital transsformation roadmaps to take thier business to the next level.
