What's On

Digital transformation is no longer an option for businesses, but an inevitable trend that has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Digital change is nothing new: at the consumer level, we have adopted to new developments over the past few decades, including compact discs, mobile phones and video games. At the same time, businesses have also explored new technologies to improve their operations.

However, the pandemic has forced enterprises to speed up the pace of their digital transformation. The demand for zero-touch business activities has been increasing. Companies need to use digital tools at many different levels, including corporate processes, talent recruitment, and product and market development.

But how and where should corporates allocate their resources when they are undergoing a digital transformation?

To better understand this issue, the Chamber has invited Jack Lau, Chairman of Swanland.AI Ltd, to share his insights on the corporate deployment of digital transformation and the related business trends at a 21 April webinar.
