Disruptive Asia: Connecting Companies


Strategic Partnerships for the Digital Age

Asia Society Australia in association with Telstra warmly invites you to an intimate discussion under our ‘Disruptive Asia’ series on how digital partnerships have become crucial to business success in the 21st century.

We are witnessing a global shift towards partnerships between organisations to build digital capabilities. As traditional markets have transformed with the convergence of social, mobile and cloud technologies, enterprises increasingly need to adopt a robust digital strategy in order to remain globally competitive.

Date: Wednesday, 22 June 2016
Time: 5:15pm - 7:30pm (discussion followed by cocktail reception)
Venue: Telstra’s Customer Insight Centre
Level 2, 400 George Street, Sydney

This high level panel discussion will feature a number of digital disruptors and experts, including:

Annie Parker, Co-Founder and Director, muru-D
Professor Roy Green, Dean, University of Technology Sydney Business School
Ghuliani Gup, General Manager Strategic Partnerships, Telstra
Jeromy Wells, Chief Executive Officer, Whispir
Mathew Benjamin, Co-Founder, Asia Recon

The discussion will focus on key findings of Telstra’s recently commissioned report, Connecting Companies: Strategic Partnerships for the Digital Age (written by The Economist Intelligence Unit). Findings included: the need for enterprises to develop new digital capabilities that serve the “always-on” customer; engaging customers across physical and digital channels; the balance of gaining exposure to new technologies while sharing the risk; the benefits of data sharing; and the benefits of engaging with start-ups as sources of rather than as competitors or potential acquisitions.

This event is generously sponsored by Telstra and will provide guests with a unique opportunity to engage with the guest speakers and high-profile audience.

RSVP is essential as places are strictly limited.
