About

CNBC Catalyst, a commercial division of CNBC, in collaboration with tech giant VMware, invites you to an exclusive invite-only, virtual event: The Shape of Resilience: Strive, Survive, Thrive.

The Discussion:
Some companies haven’t survived 2020, some have struggled through, others have thrived. What is the difference between these companies, and how can we learn from them a year on from the start of the Covid-19 Pandemic?

A year later, resiliency is no longer a short-term necessity, but a long-term key objective that companies need to implement throughout all areas of business. What moves are companies making to future proof themselves, and who are the unsung heroes of digital technology enabling industries to prosper (i.e. Cloud technologies).

The Format:
This 60 minute ‘fishbowl’ format is set up to welcome a multitude of voices. With it’s rotating fourth seat, a collection of key contributors will join our fixed panelists as the discussion progresses through the many facets that this topic encases. Simultaneously the opportunity for audience interaction throughout, enables you to influence the conversation. To enquire about joining the discussion as part of our fishbowl, please email rsvp@cnbc.com.

Who Should Join:
CTOs, CIOs, Chief Digital Officer, Chief Digital Transformation Officers, and other senior executives who have a major role to play in leveraging the right technologies at the right scale, with the right people running them.

When?
Thursday March 18, 2021
11.00am SGT | 2.00pm AUS | 4.00pm NZ | 8.30am IND
The session will be 60 minutes long.

Over the past decade, Rudy Lim has encountered entrepreneurs at all stages of growth, both locally in Singapore and globally, in his dual capacity as investor and mentor. He stands firmly by the notion that technology should be used to create value for society.
