Synopsis and overview of the session

Did you know that by 2021, at least 60% of Asia Pacific GDP will be digitalised, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhanced offerings, operations and relationships1?

What sets leaders apart is their ability to ride the digital transformation wave from an organisational culture perspective, one that talks about maturity in collaboration and agility in the transformation journey.
