About this episode

Two of the UK’s top technologists, Dayne Turbitt, Senior Vice-President and UK General Manager, and Margarete McGrath, Chief Digital Officer of Dell Technologies UK, join Michael Hayman in this week’s Change Makers. As the country moves from lockdown into recovery and organisations return to the workplace, Dayne and Margarete share their thoughts on how COVID-19 has accelerated digitisation and remote working and what that means for the future, as well as looking at the opportunities for technology to drive human progress.
