Midlands Member Discussion - AI: Opportunity and Risk

AI adoption is a rapidly rising boardroom priority, but do we know how AI could change the world of work? What are the opportunities that AI integration could bring to our organisations? And, what are the risks we need to be mitigating?

Join us and experts in the field to discuss how using AI can boost productivity, reduce costs, and what factors we should be considering when developing and future-proofing an AI strategy.

The recent announcement of additional funding to advance research and support regulators is very welcome and will help encourage many of the UK’s high growth sectors as they adopt and integrate AI processes into their operations.

Given the rapid pace of change, we must build on this momentum to ensure firms across all industries have access to the expertise and advice they need to confidently adopt these technologies and avoid falling behind their international competitors.

We will be joined by:

  • Will Richmond-Coggan, Partner and Data Privacy Litigator at Freeths who will focus on how to avoid the pitfalls of using AI and tech in your business; and
  • Matt Woolgar, Deals Partner, PwC will share how AI has brought greater insights, accuracy and transformed the way professional services are being delivered.
  • Chris Huffen, Group Commercial Director, Macildowie Recruitment & Retention who will discuss how AI is transforming the business landscape, the risk it has for your talent pipeline and the opportunities businesses should consider when building their AI strategy.
