HR and Digital Transformation session in Dubai

Here are the slides for my session in Dubai, on HR and Digital Transformation. I talked a little about Excel, Power BI, SQL Server and Oracle, as well as some of the new ways in which Artificial Intelligence could help HR.


I decided I would try and show courtesy to my hosts by wearing a headscarf. I appreciated their invite deeply and I am glad that I wore it.

My HR Summit and Expo 2017 session was held on 8th November at the Za’abeel Halls 5 – 6, Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre, Dubai. It was a truly amazing event with great content and fantastic networking. The audience were my ideal audience – really keen to learn how they could use data and technology for the purposes of the business. I would love to go back next year. I was fortunate to attend some of the other sessions and each one was a real gem. I took a lot of notes for my Executive MBA class so it was very useful from that perspective, too.

I tend to talk ‘around’ slides rather than read off them. How is your current Digital Transformation strategy performing? Are you part of an organisation which is struggling to know how to deal with your data? Do you think that you might have a Big Data problem, but you’re not really sure where to start? How do you get the experience, skills or techniques to get it right, faster and within budget? Digital Transformation is a hot topic with CEOs and the C-level suite, renewing their interest in data and what it can do to empower the organisation. As part of the Digital Transformation story, data can help to bring clarity and predictability to the HR leader to make strategic decisions, understand how their customers and employees behave, and measure what really matters to the HR team and the organization overall. Join this session to learn about effective principles and practices for Digital Transformation for the HR Leader. You will obtain advice and suggestions to help you to tackle these issues with Digital Transformation, Big Data and other issues to drive your organisation’s short and long term future, using data and Power BI.
