Participant Feedback

We hosted 4 leading experts from the travel, transport & logistics sector. The challenges discussed were centred around the current situation relating to the Covid-19 pandemic and how organisations are pivoting to better employee wellbeing and deliver customer experience: The challenges were 1) How can the willingness to embrace digital transformation be maintained in such a time? 2) How working from home has changed the way we work and how do we continue to retain and develop the culture of our organisation? The context of each challenge was discussed which flowed into a Q&A as well as a discussion around the solutions.
