Objectives & Methodology


We provide custom executive workshops, conference talks, and training in our topics of expertise. Each workshop or talk is tailored to the audience's knowledge level in the topic (beginner, intermediate, expert, or suitable for all levels) and can serve different purposes:

  • Raising awareness and provide fundamentals (e.g. cyber security)
  • Acquisition of new knowledge and/or skills (e.g. techniques and applications of AI)
  • Strategic workshop for decision makers (e.g. how to address Data challenges)
  • Keynote speaker for conference (e.g. The Future of Cyber Security)
  • Part of an Audit & Diagnostic to share knowledge between BIG experts and client executives
Our workshops and talks include clear and simple explanations of technical concepts (especially for non-technical audiences), strategic insights linking technical topics to business, best practices and pitfalls to avoid, and case studies from different industries. We also customize each workshop or talk with relevant examples and applications for the client's industry.
