Digital Transformation in Real Life

**Due to unforeseen circumstances we have to postpone our webinar to Monday 12th of September.** 

It’s a truism that digital technology has become ubiquitous in our daily lives. Yet how often do we stop and think about its broader implications and how we can get a measure of what’s going on. With such rapid change, it’s difficult to take stock.

This webinar aims to explore real-life examples of innovative measures and applications of digital technology. Digital technology has helped ensure that we can better understand how to meet healthcare needs. It allows us to understand new ways in which our established institutions like public libraries can grow and change their services. And it offers opportunities for countries to reshape their patterns of growth to adapt to the future.

However above all – and some would say ironically – digital transformation is about people. By employing digital tech we can better understand what people want – and don’t want. Removing old constraints frees up their time and choices, allowing for new ways of learning and interacting. And providing better information allows for informed decision-making to chart the future of nations.

This session explores these in a lively discussion of three recent case studies undertaken by Oxford Economics global business.

Note: Can’t make it to any of the sessions? Feel free to register for any session and we will automatically share the recording with you 3 hours after the webinar has finished.
