Description

The theme of our three panel sessions is convergence and disruption — disruption across industries, disruption across ecosystems and disruption within the organization.  In the face of this rapid change, companies need to adapt, shift their focus and challenge traditional industry boundaries to seize the upside of disruption. 
 
Digital disruption: entering a new era of convergence
Is your business adapting as fast as your customers are changing?
 
Disruption and convergence are redefining all sectors and the pace of change is only set to accelerate as new business models are born and industry boundaries blur further. Against a backdrop of continuing disruption, EY and industry leaders will discuss the innovation and value-creation dynamics of the next decade.
 
Operationalizing convergence: thriving in a connected ecosystem
When industries converge, what’s your advantage?
 
Collaboration is mission-critical in an interdependent landscape where no one entity owns the customer. Yet partner-centric ecosystems that are giving birth to a new wave of combined capabilities present challenges as well as opportunities. EY and industry participants will discuss changing approaches to data management, security and trust in a connected world.
 
Convergence and the workplace of the future: redefining the intelligent enterprise
What intelligence will you need to create a smart future?
 
Digital transformation is an imperative across all industries as companies overhaul their people, systems and processes. Emerging technologies from AI to RPA have a critical role to play, while digital skills and organizational mind sets are also evolving rapidly. EY and industry participants will discuss the workplace of the future where talent and technology have new and complementary roles to play.
