About the Webinar 

“Who led the digital transformation of your company? – COVID-19”. The popular meme highlighted the unexpected role of the current pandemic in pushing many business practices into digital.

Before the crisis, many businesses have already embarked on various forms of digital transformation journeys. The speeds and approaches varied between companies and across industries. Survived the dramatic shift to everything virtual and digital, companies started to focus on building their digital future. However, many core questions remain and we will discuss them in this session: What is digital transformation? How do companies and industries differ in their approach to digital? What will be the new equilibrium after 2020?
