The Lyra Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion on the new digital order for senior executives of prominent firms in Singapore

Hosted in partnership with SAP, the evening was set up to offer a relaxed and intimate forum in which to meet and network with other senior leaders. We brought together a group of 18 executives of prominent firms in Singapore for drinks, dinner and topical discussion on the topic, “Adapting to the New Digital Order.”

The evening was chaired by Professor Keith Carter, NUS and accompanied by a key speaker, Victor Tay, CDO at Nanyang Technological University.

The discussion will be moderated by Keith Carter, Visiting Fellow at the National University of Singapore. Keith is currently lecturing in the Decision Sciences department on using QlikView for Big Data analysis to deliver real dollarized business benefits and effectively using the Sales and Operations Planning Process to bring together Marketing, Sales, Finance and Supply Chain in multi-national corporations.

Adapting to the new digital order

This new digital reality has a complex impact on Singaporean firms. Digitalization drives a great deal of transparency and price pressure which increasingly demystifies companies’ offerings and forces firms to rethink how they add value. It also fundamentally lowers the barrier to entry for a new breed of competitors, which can be favourable or not, depending on the firm’s position in the market.

  • How is digital changing the rules of the game?
  • How have client’s demands changed in the past 5 years? And how are firms adapting to these demands?
  • Which jobs has or will automation rid the need for?
