Over the past decade, rapid advancements in digital technology have profoundly shaped the global economy and business landscape across all industries and sectors. This swell of technological advancement has raised concerns over its impact on income distribution and market competition. How concerned should we be about the effect of technological change on society?

Is there a risk that limited competition in the digital space discourages innovation? And can income inequality be solved with a tax on robots, a policy advocated by many influential figures in business?

Join us as we discuss how business leaders can address these concerns and shape the future of digital transformation.

Who Should Attend: Executives that are involved with digital transformation, innovation, strategic workforce planning, anti-trust regulations and public affairs, along with those interested in current events/policies and how they impact  business
