Digital leadership expert and number one bestselling author Erik Qualman will headline the PLDT Philippine Digital Convention 2019, which will gather together renowned thoughts leaders and key stakeholders on July 18 to 19 at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay City. A frequently requested speaker of the Fortune 500, Erik, also known as Equalman, has helped organizations understand how digitization has transformed and disrupted traditional business models.
“Digital leaders are made, they not born. At the end of the day, when you look at digital transformation at the core, it’s all about relationships,” says Equalman. Formerly a sitting professor at Harvard and MIT’s edX labs, Equalman’s books are used in over 200 universities. The most popular title among his works—Digital Leader—made him the second most likeable author in the world, just a spot behind Harry Potter’s J.K. Rowling. “When it comes to digital leadership, it’s not what we take from the world, it’s what we leave behind,” he adds.
As with past years, this year’s Digicon aims to allow guests with a first-hand experience of how the ground-breaking solutions of today and innovative concepts of tomorrow can be used as the enterprises’ edge of the future.
The two-day event will once again kick off with a digital expo, aptly referred to as the Digital Grounds Tour, which features an unprecedented take on digital evolution. Following the said exhibit will be the convention’s plenary session, which is to be headlined by Equalman as well as other tech and business leaders.
For his part, Equalman, who is listed by Forbes and Fortune as a Top 100 Digital Influencer, will deliver a presentation focused on his topics of expertise–digital leadership and innovation. On the second day of the event, guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of deep-dive workshops across verticals conducted by industry mavens and expert analysts.
Now on its fifth year, the Philippine Digital Convention 2019 is set to be the grandest iteration yet. To learn more about Erik Qualman and the upcoming PLDT Philippine Digital Convention, visit the https://pldtenterprise.com/digicon2019!
