COVID-19 has accelerated digital transformation but has the resulting technology adoption created full value on its own? This timely topic will be discussed during the Central Bank of Malta’s first webinar for the year.
The speaker, Ms Ladan Davarzani, will also discuss whether industries and economies have captured the associated benefits, driving investment and innovations that outlast the pandemic. The Bank’s chief economist, Dr Aaron G. Grech, will introduce the subject.
The online webinar, “Digital Transformation: Realising the full value of emerging technologies”, will be held on 12 March at 11 a.m. on Microsoft TEAMS. Participation is free and open to the public. There will be time for questions. Online registration is required on the Bank’s website or by sending an email.
Ms Davarzani has over a decade of experience in business research, economic modelling, design thinking, and scenario analysis. She specialises in thought leadership initiatives at Accenture Research in London. Her research examines issues at the intersection of technology, business and macroeconomics, such as the future of work and technology, inclusive economic growth, and the economic impact of emerging technologies such as the internet of things and artificial intelligence.
