While the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated profound technological shifts and digital innovations across almost every industry, many organisations had already been at least in the early stages of shifting their operations and infrastructures to more digitally-focused models. Two areas which had seen significantly relatively less innovation with respect to our already increasingly digital lifestyles are education and healthcare.
Education in much of the world had remained relatively unchanged for decades, while healthcare had remained largely a “brick-and-mortar” industry. The pandemic exposed the vulnerabilities intrinsic in these two sectors almost overnight. SCMP Conversations: Global Tech will bring together experts and founders from these two important industries to discuss the ways in which they have been forced to undergo rapid, dramatic changes, and what it all means for the future of these industries.
Join our SCMP Conversations – Global Tech webinar to hear from influential founders on how tech innovations are altering crucial industries in the wake of Covid-19:
