Thank you so much for attending the ConnecTechAsia Summit on ‘Shaping Future Societies’ and my keynote session ‘Leadership: from Experimentation to Transformation.’
As I highlighted, economists view competitiveness as vital; empowering businesses to achieve sustainable growth, generate jobs and, ultimately, enhance the welfare of citizens.
Advanced technology infrastructure and availability of new skills – in addition to favourable immigration laws and efficient ways to set up new businesses – were cited as key drivers of Singapore’s position at the top of the IMD World Competitiveness Ranking 2019.
As we look to the future, organisations will need to continually evolve to drive competitive advantage and play their part in shaping future societies. This means more than just adopting smart technologies. It will mean three things:
1. Embedding digital and AI at scale – to accelerate transformation
2. Adopting technologies that are flexible, open and secure – to support future business needs
3. Ensuring trust – both in technologies and their impact on the world
To help you lead in this next era, please find below some further IBM resources and an invitation to join me at Think Singapore on August 14 where you can hear visionary leaders talk about how they are tackling these big issues and delivering business success!
I look forward to seeing you there.
