14 November 2016 - Torbjörn Dimblad, Chief Technology Officer for OKAY.com, was recently invited to speak on a panel discussion regarding the future of Innovation and Digitalization as the representative for the Norwegian Chamber of Commerce.
The fully booked event was sponsored by Nordea and jointly hosted by the Chambers of Commerce of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, with some 50 professionals from Hong Kong’s business community attending.
Covering a wide range of topics including new business models, artificial intelligence, big data, the Internet of Things and personal data rights, the discussion proved to be a thoughtful examination of the definition of innovation itself, and how organizations can better innovate in anticipation of changing consumer and technological trends.
A core theme across the topics was the impact of innovation on behavior – both of consumers and of organizations. As Torbjörn elaborated “Technology has traditionally been an enabler of efficiency, but now is equally known as the catalyst for organizations to innovate new business models that change people’s behavior. Ultimately, it is this change in our behaviors and actions that lead to the betterment of the whole – be it consumer driven, an alignment of interests, a social good such as environmental conservation, or higher productivity in our lives."
