AI and Digital Track

Six elective tracks, six critical areas of interest for HR - many choices to learn.


Artificial Intelligence, Digital Technologies, Cognitive, Robotics, IoT… the list of new technologies is seemingly endless and sometimes maddeningly difficult to conceptually pin-point. As technologies augment the workplace, there’s a huge array of questions that HR professionals need to address. The most important of which is how HR can lead the digital transformation of the organization for long term success. But the track will also explore how these technologies will impact HR, the organization, and the workforce – not only from the technical standpoint, but also in terms of the adaptive skills that will become a default part of the future of work.

11:00 – 11:10 – Opening Remarks

Welcome and Opening Remarks

11:10 – 11:40 – A Compelling Coalition – How HR and IT are (together) Driving Digital Transformation, Kevin Empey, WorkMatters

Kevin Empey, Managing Director, WorkMatters

Digital Transformation – in the real sense of the term – is revolutionising how and where work is been done today and we know this will continue to increase even more in the future. In the pre-digital world IT and HR often operated in parallel worlds but digitalization crosses traditional boundaries and is changing that relationship for good. HR and IT now share a common agenda and mission to maximise the potential and application of technology in the workplace and in shaping new ways of getting work done. But who is really leading this revolution and transformation of work, how will this change in the future and what does it all mean for HR?

12:40 – 14:00 – LUNCH & NETWORKING BREAK

Lunch will be served in the Exhibition Area, where you will have the opportunity to meet with your fellow HR Professionals and network. During the break, there will be Day Stage sessions, content-driven presentations delivered by our Sponsoring Partners.

14:30 – 15:00 – Shaping the People and Workplace of the Future – The A1 Journey Towards Digital and Agile Transformation – Ivan Skender, A1

Ivan Skender – Chief Digital Officer, A1

Being able to grow in today’s constantly changing digital environment is a challenging task, and in order to remain efficient, companies need to adopt an agile mindset. It is important to predict what customers want, to provide it faster and better than others with constant innovations, and to find new ways to approach customers in order to create the best customer experiences. Agile has to be a culture change for the whole organization – and only strong agile teams can deliver real added value to customers. Agility is simply the engine that powers a successful digital transformation.

After the sessions have ended, there will be a Coffee and Networking break between 15:30 and 16:00. Following which, the Keynote Sessions will start in the main auditorium.
