Fostering data-driven conversations

Data is the key to business transformation, as companies look to accelerate into the post-pandemic new normal. However, many organisations across Asia-Pacific are struggling to fully unlock their data potential as they are still coming to terms with the structural changes to their workplaces such as a hybrid workforce and an increase in freelance and flexible staffing. Communication is critical to any transformational project, and there is evidence that communication within the new hybrid workplace is breaking down: half of executives think they have been engaging employees more in decision-making since the pandemic, while only 27% of employees agree.

Data democratisation and empowerment can only be fully realised in a business where people are communicating with meaning and purpose. So how can organisations foster a company culture that is based on quality conversations around data? 

In this session, Charles Ross, Principal, public policy and thought leadership, The Economist Group and business leaders from across the region discuss how organisations can foster meaningful conversations around data to aid their business transformations.
