The End of Business As Usual: Navigating Disruption in the Global Business Landscape
The traditional rules and assumptions of business are no longer valid in the new digital economy. Emerging technologies have triggered a shift in the global consumer market, resulting in the urgent need for brands to adopt transformative approaches to customer engagement, organization structures, and business models. This keynote presentation awakens curiosity and widens perspectives on the latest trends and technologies impacting the traditional business landscape, and motivates audiences to explore innovative approaches that accelerate success in digital business transformation.

”Kamales was a keynote speaker at our Swiss market research flagship event and spoke about digital transformation in fast-changing times. She’s an engaging speaker with strong background knowledge on current trends in various industries and able to perfectly integrate that knowledge in her speaking topic, outlined together in the briefing.

“Above all, she demonstrated that digitisation develops from the mindset and leadership, from technology. I also liked the well-chosen examples that show that new, out-of-the-box thinking, is necessary, and how disruptive trends and digital technologies create business opportunities. For me, the Digital Maturity Assessment, or the picture that emerged from our assessments, was very impressive. Without a common understanding of the questions, the different images are not surprising. Nevertheless, it has shown that it is imperative that we start activities to first get a common understanding on this topic and then jointly start the “Digital Business Transformation Journey” for our company that she mentioned. In the quadrant, she showed us that this should start with mindset and leadership.”
— Carl Elsener, CEO, Victorinox
