Harriet Green, CEO and Chairman, IBM Asia Pacific:
Session Title: Leadership: from Experimentation to TransformationSession Synopsis
A new era of business reinvention is dawning. Organisations are facing an unprecedented convergence of technological, social and regulatory forces. As artificial intelligence (AI), automation, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain and 5G become pervasive, their combined impact will reshape standard business architectures. The “outside-in” digital transformation of the past decade is giving way to the “inside-out” potential of data exploited with these exponential technologies. Many organisations already experimented with AI and moved simple workloads to the cloud. Now, there is a new chapter opening, moving from experimentation to true transformation, with speed and scale.
Harriet Green is a global executive who has led business transformations on four continents, with a proven track record for developing and implementing strategies for profitable growth and increasing shareholder value in global technology, logistics, travel and consumer sectors.
Harriet is currently serving as the CEO and Chairman of IBM Asia Pacific. Previously, she was IBM’s General Manager for Watson Internet of Things, Commerce and Education. In this role, she is responsible for driving growth in some of IBM’s highest priority and most strategic business initiatives, which are using cognitive computing to help clients unlock value from the massive amount of data within their organisations. Previously, as CEO of the Thomas Cook Group, Harriet led the successful global transformation and rebranding of the oldest name in leisure travel.
In June 2016, Harriet won the Women in Technology Institute (WITI) award and was inducted into the Women in Technology Hall of Fame. She is also a life-long champion of diversity and inclusion, most recently featured in the Top 10 for the second consecutive year in the FT HERoes Champions of Women in Business list.
