PLDT Smart SME Nation’s TechIsland 3.0 is just one week away!

07:28 PM April 14, 2016

In what is slated to be the biggest TechIsland yet, expect to see some of the biggest names in business share their thoughts and insights at PLDT Smart SME Nation’s TechIsland 3.0: Challenge, Change, and Conquer.

Joining the thought leadership conference are Mr. Eric Alberto, PLDT Executive Vice President and ePLDT President and CEO, Ms. Merlee Jayme, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of DENTSU Jayme Syfu, Mr. Winston Damarillo, Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) of PLDT and CEO of Talas—the group’s Big Data organization—and Mr. Laurence Cua, General Manager of Uber Manila.


CHALLENGE


In the first TechIsland, PLDT Smart SME Nation defined what it meant to be digital. Without resorting to complications, going digital means having the ability to solve real life business problems through technology.

TechIsland takes that concept further by encouraging MSMEs to go past traditional methods and look towards advancing their enterprise through modern digital business solutions.

CHANGE

There is roughly a million registered businesses in the Philippines. 99.5% of these businesses are categorized as micro, small, or medium-sized. Of these, only one percent have an online presence and an even smaller fraction have fully functional websites.

TechIsland recognizes that in order for businesses to be competitive, the ability to evolve and adapt to changes in the digital landscape is crucial. Breakout sessions catering to varied fields — IT, Marketing, Finance, Engineering, etc. — were held to spark digital transformations that benefit business operations.

CONQUER

TechIsland 3.0’s mission is to empower Philippines’ MSMEs. This time around, the discussions have been expanded beyond just IT and business owners. Now included in the audience are Marketing, Sales, Operations, and Finance professionals.

Join TechIsland 3.0 and explore technology further. By empowering your business with the latest developments in technology, the digital terrain will be yours to conquer.
