Shifting Gears in a Changing Economy – The Talent Imperative
26 April 2018 @ 8:45 am - 9:30 am
Digital transformation continues to radically change the face of business in Canada. We are also witnessing a new era of global trade, industrialization, and socio-economic shifts that are profoundly shaping our world. The heightened urbanization of the world population, the rise of the gig economy, changing environmental trends, the uptake of Blockchain and cryptocurrencies, the increased demand for peer-to-peer consumerism, and the upsurge in intelligent and autonomous systems are all signs of this rapidly evolving digital landscape.
These impending trends are ushering a new era of convenience, affordability, and responsiveness that are expected to significantly disrupt traditional markets in the coming years. The dynamics of such an economy, along with the societal trends that emerge from it, are expected to give way to frequent shifts in business models and employment prospects.
ICTC President and CEO Namir Anani will explore the various transformative technologies shaping Canada’s economy and address the key catalysts for enhancing business competitiveness in a global economy.
