Tradition of celebrating DX excellence continues in July

After 16 months of continuous change, Canadian companies are grappling to find new ways to keep pushing their pandemic-inspired digital transformation efforts forward.

It’s a big challenge, but if you are among the leaders interested in maintaining the momentum that saw years of digitization take place in just a few months, ITWC has the conference –  and conference sessions that are just right for you.

ITWC’s 2021 Digital Transformation Week Conference: Count me in

Our annual Digital Transformation Week conference slated for July 13 -15 and is chock full of panels, presentations and case study awards that will bring peer insights to bear on topics ranging from the new digital workforce to how to sell digital transformation to your Board.

“Over the past year, businesses have done a superb job of making the shift to a work-from-home posture and implementing online sales,” said ITWC President Fawn Annan. “The challenge is now to keep that going.”

Three senior leaders in the Canadian tech scene will be tackling that subject directly during the closing day of the 2021 conference. Humza Teherany,  Chief Technology and Digital Officer, MLSE Inc. Mark Bryant, CIO, PLC Construction, and Christine Day, CIO, Questrade will share their thoughts on developing an innovation-first culture during the panel  How to build on your pandemic-inspired progress.
