Singapore Press Holdings was buzzing on August 19 with the launch of its inaugural tech conference, SPHTech Day: Transformation 2019.
The event celebrated SPH’s continuous journey of digital transformation and innovation in conjunction with its 35th anniversary.
In his keynote speech, SPH CEO Ng Yat Chung shared that SPH recognises how technology is disrupting businesses across all industries and is equipping itself to surmount the challenges. Mr Ng also highlighted the event’s aim to raise awareness, and the impetus to innovate and re-skill oneself in this era of digital disruption.
This was followed by an interesting fireside chat between SPH Deputy CEO Anthony Tan and Markus Leonhard Keiper, Ex-CMO and Head of Product for AIRBUS, where Mr Tan shared about how SPH was one of the first news companies in Singapore to have an online presence, as well as SPH’s ongoing efforts to meet the varied needs of its readers, both in content and products.
