Social: World Cancer Day: Supporting Cancer Central


With the 4th February being World Cancer Day, we wanted to show our support to the cancer community by holding a charity bake sale to raise money for Cancer Central.

Cancer Central is a charity helping to bring the cancer community together with their new digital platform, making it easier for individuals to find the information and support they need. The platform enables individuals to access national and local businesses, services and charities so that they can find what they are looking for. With time, we hope that Cancer Central will be the go-to place for individuals looking for cancer support. To find out
more about this charity click here.

Exponential-e staff really pulled together to create some tasty culinary treats for the whole office to enjoy, including cupcakes, sausage rolls, Jamaican patties and steak and ale pies. With our collective efforts, we managed to raise a total of £731.87 for Cancer Central, which will go towards funding their digital platform.

Digital Transformation from the perspective of a CFO - Part 3


Digital Transformation (DX) is primarily a people thing, technology is second!

DX is not a one-off project, change needs to become a cultural norm. It's a commitment to embark on a DX journey, a bottomless fuel tank of continual change, the route unknown, but the destination is categorically value creation. You need to be restless, and adopt a constant dissatisfaction with the status quo. If DX was approached as a one-off project, I would be sceptical of the success of such a project!
