Description

CAN WE…BALANCE ON THE EDGE OF DIGITAL CHAOS?

It’s imperative that we balance carefully on the edge of disruption and innovation. With the world constantly changing beneath us, every action has a consequence.

Join alumni and friends for a gripping talk to be delivered by Professor David Sundaram.

To ensure our technological advances support a sustainable future, we must adapt a holistic way of thinking. Environmental, societal and economic sectors are all equally important.

David will explain how the University of Auckland is at the forefront of developing designs and adaptive systems that incorporate these three elements, so leaders can create strategies that have fewer negative impacts.

David is a Professor in Information Systems and Operations Management at the University’s Business School. He was formerly Assistant Director and Consultant at the National Productivity Council in India.

We would be delighted to host you at this informative networking event.
