Frequently Asked Questions
How is Digital Boardroom different from other conferences?
Digital Boardroom was launched to support WBR’s portfolio of annual industry conferences by offering year-round networking and information exchange, on demand, from the comfort of your own office. Our most senior conference attendees tell us that though there is undoubtedly always a need to benchmark, exchange ideas, build a peer to peer network and find solutions; attending lots of large events over a number of days is becoming difficult to justify in terms of return and time out of the office. .
Digital Boardroom solves this dilemma by giving senior executives free access to content and networking via our digital platform and quarterly summits in a time effective format to deliver genuine value.
Digital Boardroom Think Tanks with industry peers allow for candid and lively discussion to compare strategies, pinpoint new opportunities and build relationships. These intimate 90-minute roundtables enable off-the-record dialogue and brainstorming with peers around a tightly defined topic and are strictly limited to no more than 6 participants to ensure value for everyone. Your time is important and our events are designed to extract maximum value, to network, exchange best practice and benchmark with European corporate leaders across industries.
How are boardroom topics chosen?
At Digital Boardroom we understand the importance of regular consultation with all members to ensure that each and every executive is gaining maximum value from the network. Therefore, from your very first research and qualification call and throughout your membership you will be influencing the boardroom topic selection.
How much time will it take?
Digital Boardroom was launched to enable time poor executives to reap the benefits from peer-to-peer networking and information sharing without even leaving their office. Participating in Digital Boardroom via our virtual platform is fast proving to be one of the most efficient ways to do business with people around the globe.
With no more than 6 participants, the 90 minute agenda delivers deep dive insight on key issues as identified by the executive community partaking in the event. Which ensures it is a valuable use of your time that will quickly provide you the relevant information that will enable you to achieve your daily business ambitions.
‘Our objective coming into Digital Boardroom was to learn a great deal from other thought leaders within the industry. We achieved this more quickly with Digital Boardroom than we would have done with any other method.’

What technology do I need?
All that’s needed to take part in a Digital Boardroom is a web cam and a strong internet connection. Before your scheduled event we will send you an invitation link and joining instructions (which you can also find here).
Who will I be in a boardroom with?
Membership of Digital Boardroom is completely complimentary: no subscription, no travel expenses, no fees of any kind, but it is open only to qualified senior level executives to ensure a consistently high quality. Upon joining all members must qualify along strict criteria of seniority, responsibility and priority. It is through this qualification process that we will invite small groups of executives that can support and benefit from each other within a specific topic area together for a 90 minute think tank.
How does Digital Boardroom qualify roundtable sponsors?
Digital Boardroom only invites sponsors to participate in a roundtable that have been recommended and referred by our membership for providing a good service. It is through this referral system that we can introduce you to trusted solution providers of the highest calibre.
Their role within the boardroom is not to sell to you, but to provide thought leadership within their specific topic area. In addition, they support the discussion by bringing practical examples and case studies of the challenge and how it has been overcome by others.
We only invite one sponsor to each roundtable in order to support you with genuine insight and solutions to the common issues faced around the topic.
How secure is the information shared within the Digital Boardroom?
In order to facilitate candid discussion that provides all executives tangible solutions all meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule. This means participants are free to use the information received; but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant may be revealed. (NB: Roundtable contributions are cited anonymously in all reports and white papers.)
How do I access my meeting report and other useful white papers?
