The 4th Industrial Revolution is rapidly unfolding; and many industries and professions are expected to change more in the next 10 years than in the last 50 years. Recognising that readiness for change is key to navigating the future of work, this year’s Tech3 Forum directed the discussion on “The Future of Work in the Digital Age”.
Engaging IT professionals as well as professionals from other industries and professional bodies, including the Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF), Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF) and Singapore Academy of Law (SAL), the Forum featured a strong line-up of speakers and panellists – Charlie Ang from Everything40.com,
Lai Shanru from ShopBack, Prof Annie Koh from SMU, Jocelyn Chng from JR Group, Arthur Chua from Goldbell Group, Toby Koh from Ademco Security Group and Charlton Ong from Singtel. Mrs Josephine Teo, Minister for Manpower, also honoured the event with her presence.
The speakers emphasised the importance of an agile mindset and the need to innovate to stay relevant in today’s digital age. Particularly, the keynote speaker,
Dr Robert Yap, Executive Chairman of YCH Group, noted, “Mindless agility creates an open and relentless attitude that promotes active cooperation. This same agility also inspires outstanding innovation for continuous development and sustainable growth.”
