This thought piece is derived from a thought leadership forum that Odgers Berndtson recently organised in Singapore. In particular the discussion focussed on:

  • Changing demographics and GDP growth
  • Evolution of the workforce combined with technology disruption
  • ASEAN and the impact of digital disruption
  • The importance of leadership and talent acquisition

The keynote was Dr Fraser Thompson, who led an insightful and engaging session at the Tower Club in Singapore on demographic and technology trends and how they will impact businesses in Asia in the coming decades. In attendance were information technology and digital executives from both global and local companies who participated in a lively discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing their business and their workforce in an increasingly digital world. Although the discussion focussed in the main on the Asia Pacific/Japan region, the topics were also addressed from a global viewpoint, in part due to the global nature of the economy but also the people in the room.
