(DIGITALIZATION AND BUSINESS EMPOWERMENT)
Waterfront Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak, 23rd – 25th July 2020

 

Digitalization in the 21st century continues to influence how organisations and businesses function and process. However, success in digitalization requires continuous co-operation, empowerment, and planning. Over the years, we have seen changes in digitalizing and empowerment in not just businesses, but also in the workplace. Such digitalization and empowerment are becoming more important where it continues to drive businesses to go global. It also increased the speed of business innovation and transformation, while offering new knowledge and stronger insights into how businesses function and operate in a globalised market.
