What will Tomorrow's World look like? COVID-19, for all its disruption, brought us into the new decade with great efficiency, but opens up a panoply of questions.

Which technologies will thrive? What type of businesses will emerge? What will happen to cities? How will innovation be different? Will full employment ever return? Will climate cataclysm become a real threat in this decade alone?

In this thought leadership seminar for CIO/CTOs, we dive deeply into emerging Cyber risk, the need to re-imagine our Workforce, Post-COVID Leadership skills, and transformed sci-tech innovation trends. Using an interactive format, we ask a set of accomplished panellists: how can CIO/CTO quickly yet soundly prepare for a more pronounced business leadership role in a technologically enhanced, yet physically deteriorating world?
