Digital Transformation in Real Life

with Sundus Alfi , Andrew Tessler and James Lambert | Online | September 12, 2022

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.

Which world cities will see the strongest employment growth to 2026, and why?

with Richard Holt and Anthony Light | Online | April 19, 2022

Following the recent publication of our latest forecasts for the world’s leading cities, and against a background of huge short-term uncertainty for the global economy, this webinar will stand back, and offer a medium-term (to 2026) view of job prospects in major cities. Have the pandemic, the inflation surge and supply shortages, and now the Russian invasion of Ukraine, changed everything? Or will cities in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific gradually return to their pre-pandemic trajectories? Which cities will be the winners, and which are the ones that are most likely to struggle?
