Keynote: Big data and AI: The future of business

Ms. Mah Kam Lin’s presentation on the application and usage of data for long-term strategic planning purposes. Data is a flexible, contextual and sensitive resource that can be used to draw micro-scale insights or macro-scale conclusions and inferences across wide markets, demographics and industry segments.However, it is important to distinguish between false leads and conclusions based on pertinent findings. Business leaders, movers and shakers must learn the importance of sifting through random correlation to find insightful causation - a task which can be optimised with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI).Conclusions can also be drawn from incidental and auxiliary data that do not immediately appear to provide useful information, but can be modelled to find implicit connections producing valuable results and actionable programmes.This keynote session will take place in the Digital Innovation theatre.

Managing your team in the cloud: Removing silos & improving visibility

CEOs and leadership teams today look for breakthrough performance and productivity gains from their employees. To achieve these gains within your finance team and wider business it's important to understand the dramatic shifts underway in the highly digitised or fully virtual work environment and refocus on enabling higher levels of workforce performance while keeping employees engaged.Individual and organisational performance management needs to be redesigned. We are moving from traditional ranking and rating by observation and personal interaction to a more integrated approach based on employee coaching, co-creation, collaboration and innovation using digital platforms with less and less face to face contact. Employees in this environment have more ambiguous objectives, and their work is interconnected with a growing, more dispersed network. Managing teams in the Cloud provides tangible opportunities and at the same time poses governance risks to the organisation, so finding the right balance is critical.3 Key Takeaways: Delegates will learn about performance management, governance and risk management in increasingly digitised business environments.
