The Now, New, and Next Normal: Digitization in a Post COVID-19 World

7/29/2020 9:30 AM (Hong Kong GMT +8) - 10:30 (Hong Kong GMT +8)


Who Should Watch

Executives in technology and business operations roles who are interested in better understanding how to transition from the “now normal”, redefine the “new normal”, and use data on emerging trends, threats, and opportunities to position themselves for success ahead of the “next normal”.


COVID-19 did not dramatically change digital strategies and digital transformations across our industries, it only served to accelerate them. What can we expect in a post COVID-19 world? How will the way we run our operations change? What are the event horizon technology advances we need to be aware? We may not have all the answers, but the ones we do have will surface questions that we aren’t asking today.
