Digital transformation: Make or Decline!

In this digital revolution era, businesses and institutions have to adapt, and this leads to many questions and debates. It was on this theme that D2A (Digital to accelerate) and Arrowman Executive Search’s after work took place on board the « La Balle au Bond » barge.

The evening began with a round table introducing the new book « Why your next boss will be Chinese » by Denis Jacquet, entrepreneur and founder of Day One Event. The discussion focused on global technological and economic issues and their impact on business organizations, particularly in the area of Human Resources.

Led by Pascal Bécache and Didier Tranchier, D2A’s Associate Directors, the round table was composed of three guests: author and entrepreneur Denis Jacquet, the president of Otsuka Pharmaceutical, Fabienne Delaplace-Lavoix and Jean-Pierre Scandella, Managing Director of Arrowman Executive Search, who were able to exchange very directly on the impact of China on the acceleration of the digital transformation.

Without reaching a final conclusion, the exchanges were rich and made it possible to measure the adaptability of our companies to this new world, where Data and mobility are only accelerating under the pressure of the new global and conquering actor, China. The urgency of building pragmatic responses and not falling into pessimism has been blended with some concerns expressed about the incomprehension of some issues by public sector actors.

A convivial cocktail allowed the participants to continue the discussions. We warmly thank all of the guests and participants for this beautiful event.
