Digital Transformation Festival day 1 recap: BBC Global News, LinkedIn and Asda set the tone

The Drum's new Digital Transformation Festival is underway after a busy first day of streamed sessions and exclusive content.

Headlining day one was a lively panel discussion in association with BBC Global News examining the unprecedented disruption caused by the coronavirus, and how the fallout from the pandemic is impacting the ad industry. If you missed it, you can catch up now.

Monday's other standout video sessions included an interview with Asda's outgoing chief customer officer, Andy Murray, on the impact of digital transformation on retail.
