Partner at McKinsey and Company (London) Ganaka Herath, Deputy Chairman of John Keells Holdings Ajit Gunawardena, Senior Director of Sampath Bank Sanjiva Senanayake, and CEO of FairFirst Insurance Sanjeev Jha will discuss how corporates can get smarter on making decisions on digital investments at the upcoming ‘Future of Business’ Innovation Strategy and Learning Event’ of the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
The Immersive Breakout Session titled, ‘Understanding Digital to Invest in Digital and How to Convince Your Board,’ will focus on how senior executives in technology, finance and strategy can sharpen their decision making on digital investments in their companies, how ‘digital champions’ of the companies can make a strong case for digital investments, and how they can make Boards of Directors understand the importance of digital investments. Although, most leading businesses are keen to leverage on digital technologies, many don’t know where to start. The C-Suite may be behind the curve and not understand, or they do and find it difficult to convince investors and the Board to agree to go ahead with digitalization of firms. Most importantly, speakers will touch on how to align a digital strategy to an overall transformation strategy and how to avoid wasted digital investments.
The 24th of March event to be held at the Hilton Colombo Residences will enable the participants to learn about driving innovation in their organizations, dissect what changes are happening now, what are on the horizon, and how their company can adapt to face the future.
The event is suited for C-suite officers and senior executives in technology, strategy, marketing, HR and new business development.
