Event description
Ron Babin will share his insights on how you can help our organization adapt to disruption caused by the digital revolution.

About this Event

Without a doubt, the rapid arrival of digital technologies in the last decade has created a disruptive business environment for existing organizations and an interesting opportunity for new start-ups. Consumer digital technologies such as smart phones, cloud services and high-speed Internet are changing much of the business landscape. As the technology becomes more reliable and affordable, we are now seeing artificial intelligence (AI) and software robotics available for consumers.

This introductory breakfast session will examine the underlying digital technology drivers that are creating this disruptive environment. The focus of the session will be to understand how digital disruption will affect businesses today and in the near future, and how existing businesses can prepare for the inevitable transformation that new technologies bring.

Those who attend the breakfast:

• Will be able to benchmark their personal and organizational digital readiness, allowing them to understand strengths and weaknesses in their competitive digital positioning;

• Will gain insight and will be able to begin or augment their competitive digital plans; and

• Will understand how others in their industry are positioned to compete digitally.

This breakfast will examine firms’ organizational structure and whether their their ability to adapt to change is evolving and allowing it to cope with the new skill requirements and employment arrangements for a (global) digital workforce. The overall theme of this introductory breakfast will suggest practical actions required by business organizations to prepare for, and succeed with, digital disruption.
