How do we embrace technological disruption? webinar

Watch this event

As we address major global challenges, technological disruption provides risks and opportunities.  Furthermore, there is growing sense of urgency and uncertainty amplified by the Covid-19 crisis and emerging ‘new norm’. However, the technological landscape can be confusing with Fin Tech, Prop Tech and Con Tech start-ups and traditional players exploring the art of the possible.

Many businesses are wondering, what is the right approach to transforming their business models, projects and real estate?  We have an opportunity not to become a victim but a champion of technological disruption to transform our ways of working.

In this webinar, the opportunity is explored with a transport/rail case study and conclusions are drawn for the best way to embrace ‘technological disruption’ from different perspectives.
