Navigating the Digital Transformation

Digital transformation continues to radically change the face of business in Canada. The advent of the collaborative economy, the rise of advanced robotics and artificial intelligence, the adoption of blockchain in financial services, and advances in autonomous vehicles are all the result of successive innovations in this rapidly evolving digital landscape. These advancements are ushering in a new era of convenience, affordability, and responsiveness that are expected to significantly disrupt traditional markets in the coming years. This accelerated wave of business transformation, however, comes amidst signs of interest rate hikes, changing global trade landscape, and heightening demand for skilled digital talent. This presentation will explore the various transformative technologies shaping Canada's economy and address the key catalysts for enhancing business competitiveness in a global economy.
