Panel: Voices from the Pacific

The Pacific Islands, a disparate group of tiny nations with a combined population of just over 2 million people scattered over an area equivalent to 15% of the earth’s surface, has become a geopolitical football. China has drastically increased investment in infrastructure and aid donations across the region in recent years, while U.S. soft diplomacy is at a post-World War II peak. Amid fears of militarisation of the region, its future has been endlessly debated by Western powers and thinktanks. Pacific Island leaders have their own priorities, most notably climate change, that will determine who holds influence over the region in coming years.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced businesses to quickly — and drastically — reconsider and accelerate their digital transformation plans, resulting in a more focused conversation on the importance of technology adoption across organizations and implementation across the entire enterprise. Change isn’t going to slow down, as evidenced by the global pandemic, so organizations need to look forward to the future of their organizations alongside their people. What was learned during the pandemic and how can this be applied to organizations going forward to “future proof” themselves for the next disruption? In this interview, Michael (Mike) DePrisco, Chief Operating Officer, Project Management Institute (PMI) will explore the impact of pandemic-led digitization and innovations, the subsequent disruption to organizations, industries and people, and how companies are adapting amidst the competitive landscape.

Panel: Tapping into behavioural science - lessons from COVID-19

During the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world have had to implement policies they never thought possible, from lockdowns in liberty-loving nations, furlough schemes among the fiscally conservative, and mass vaccination of sceptical citizens. Yet, for the most part, these policies have been accepted (and in some cases embraced) – why? What lessons can be taken from the way the world has adapted to life in a pandemic, and what does it mean for future policymaking?
