Alumni Advisors

We are extremely proud of the way our Digital Minds alumni take the programme to their hearts and remain involved once their year is complete.

In particular, from each cohort we select stand-out individuals to become Alumni Advisors for the next programme year. The Alumni Advisors receive additional coaching to provide support and advice, and share thought leadership, subject matter expertise and market insights to our new programme delegates.
