The Vita Dinner

An exclusive dinner discussion for IT Leaders of prominent firms in the Philippines

The Realities of Digital Transformation in the Philippines


Many boards of directors and senior management teams aspire to the efficiencies, innovation, and competitiveness that digital transformation promises to deliver. Yet, the path to transformation, like many corporate initiatives, can be challenging and it is important to fully grasp its benefits rather than purely getting seduced by its hype.

We gathered IT leaders from the Philippines’ most prominent firms to discuss and share experiences on how digital transformation can affect operations as well as structure new goals. We asked:

  • What opportunities and challenges is technology bringing to existing businesses?
  • Which new skills are becoming crucial in order to remain competitive and relevant? And are these talents present in the Philippines?
  • How is big data improving organisations’ efficiency and productivity?

6:00 pm: Arrival and drinks reception

7:10 pm: Dinner discussion on “The realities of digital transformation in the Philippines” initiated by the moderator and continued by the group
8:00 pm: Dinner is served as the discussion is brought to a close
