Developing the Digital DNA For Your Organisation Workshop

Wednesday, 4 September 2019, Shangri-La, Colombo, Sri Lanka

Make your employees agents of change in a transforming world

Understanding digital transformation to stay ahead of the competition has always been highly sought after. Today it is possible! You will build a plan for the future by yourself, with our help.

Companies find themselves struggling to keep up with developments in this fast changing world. Technology evolves so fast, it is difficult to follow every development. Keeping up is an important part of doing business, but if the employees are not able to transform themselves, change is bound to fail. How come others like startups and tech companies are better able to cope with these changes? How come technology companies seem to have thriving, agile cultures and to attract enough top talent, when banking culture is considered old fashioned?

The answer is in to increase the change capabilities of your staff, like being curious, inquisitive and innovative. Part of this is developing the willingness to take (calculated) risks. This change will require a new mindset for both employees and leaders, especially in control based environments like banking. This workshop has been developed by some of the most experienced change agents in the financial world.

Delegates attending this one-day workshop will gain complimentary access to Finance Sri Lanka 2019– designed for senior executives from retail banks, financial institutions, insurance, fintech and large technology companies to come together for a day of intense discussions on the key developments in the financial services and retail banking sector.
