Webinar Recap: “How Leaders Can Unlock Digital Transformation, Remain Relevant and Avoid Disruption” with KK Diaz”

Published On: October 9, 20202.2 min read


Can digital transformation support the pivotal growth of your business? The answer, says July Webinar Presenter KK Diaz, is an unequivocal ‘YES’. Over 80% of business leaders who were surveyed agree they need to digitally innovate at a rapid pace to grow and maintain a competitive edge.

KK cites an EY report released in March 2020 which surveyed 500 large corporations and 70 startups in nine sectors, claims that companies who are considered digital transformation top performers are:

 50% more likely to see EBITDA increase by more than 15%
 45% more likely to unlock annual revenue growth of more than 10%
 26% more likely to enjoy annual gross profit increase by more than 10%

For his webinar this month, KK posed the critical question, “If the benefits of digital transformation are obvious, especially to overcome Covid-19 pandemic related disruption, why is it that most organizations still drag their feet to initiate or accelerate their efforts in this regards?”

The need to rebuild our companies and economies post the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown is non-negotiable, says KK. Digital transformation provides the strategy and tools required to overcome disruption and to stimulate growth in the digital age.
