Harmon identified how technological innovation is changing the way we work, stating that “working at home using apps and online platforms and having a great productive day is now a reality.”

 

An increasing need for industry leaders and experts

Among the many important topics covered, one that was brought up on several occasions was the growing need for professionals able to play key roles in developing this new digital future.
