Gareth is the leader of the Deloitte Digital Transformation practice, which assists clients to survive and thrive the onslaught of disruptive transformational technologies.

He believes that large businesses are at risk of being disrupted by a wave of exponential technologies that are shifting the balance from scale advantage to speed and agility. Gareth and his team assist large organisations to disrupt before they are disrupted. By doing so, they help clients harness the power of exponential technologies such as IoT, Blockchain, Cognitive Analytics and Robotics.

Furthermore, by focusing on the power of platforms, the Digital Strategy and Innovation team operate a People Platform Business which aims to support and enhance staff performance within the digital era. By rapidly prototyping solutions to key pain points and by making use of agile methodologies to drive incremental digital transformation, they are able to guide their clients on a transformation journey and, thereby, enabling them to stay relevant.

In addition to his role in Deloitte Digital, Gareth leads the Rapid Commercialisation practice, Deloitte’s business incubator, and supports the Corporate Innovation and Growth Practice.

Gareth has a Master of Business Administration degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Genetics from the University of the Witwatersrand.
