Event Details

ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to the recent developments with coronavirus outbreak in Korea we have decided to postpone this event.

People related issues often top the list of reasons why the digital transformation journey fails to deliver. The existing workforce may not have the required skill-sets or mindset, organizational structure and culture may hamper change management, or there may be a problem in attracting or accessing new talent: the digital natives with the skills and experiences in high market demand.

Given the strategic importance of delivering a successful transformation, business leaders need to be front and centre in establishing, engaging and empowering the digital employee. But are they? What are the factors of success and where are the pain points? How are business leaders working with functional heads who may be more traditionally focused on the management of human resources or application of information technology than the business as a whole? To what extent are they developing and accessing a broader ecosystem of expertise and support to build the digital workforce?

Join us as we present the findings of our new white paper on talent management based on the survey of senior executives across Asia and discuss the role of the business leader in shaping a digital ready workforce.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please send an email to
