Digital leadership expert and No. 1 bestselling author Erik Qualman (Equalman) will headline the Philippine Digital Convention 2019, which will gather together renowned thought leaders and key stakeholders on July 18-19 at the Marriott Grand Ballroom in Pasay City.
A frequently requested speaker of the Fortune 500, Erik, who is also known as Equalman, has helped organizations understand how digitization has transformed and disrupted traditional business models.
“Digital leaders are made, they not born,” said Equalman. “At the end of the day, when you look at digital transformation at the core, it’s all about relationships.”
Formerly a sitting professor at Harvard and MIT’s edX labs, Equalman’s books are used in over 200 universities. The most popular title among his works, “Digital Leader,” made him the second most likable author in the world, just a spot behind Harry Potter’s J.K. Rowling.
“When it comes to digital leadership, it’s not what we take from the world, it’s what we leave behind,” he said.
As in past years, this year’s Digicon aims to give guests a first-hand experience on how the ground-breaking solutions of today and innovative concepts of tomorrow can be used as the enterprises’ edge of the future.
The two-day event will once again kick off with a digital expo, aptly referred to as the Digital Grounds Tour, which features an unprecedented take on digital evolution. Following the said exhibit will be the convention’s plenary session, which is to be headlined by Equalman as well as other tech and business leaders.
For his part, Equalman, who is listed by Forbes and Fortune as a Top 100 Digital Influencer, will deliver a presentation focused on digital leadership and innovation.
On the second day of the event, guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of deep-dive workshops across verticals conducted by industry mavens and expert analysts.
