“The Elephant On Metro Manila’s Roads”
There is no silver bullet to ending Metro Manila’s traffic woes. Experts have set out a comprehensive set of measures, a roadmap, if you will – but implementation has been patchy. This presentation will focus on one subset, the transformation of the jeepneys into the digital age. It is the elephant in the room which no one dares confront. And yet, its benefits can be immediate and long term. More importantly, the One solution that would ignite a chain reaction towards a congestion-free and liveable metropolis.

“Introduction to Blockchain Technology”
Blockchain is a new breakthrough technology that enables multi-party access to a distributed ledger. It’s the technology behind the cryptocurrency Bitcoin and is paving new ways to approach financial systems with efficiency and data integrity at the core. But the blockchain has a lot more to offer. This revolutionary technology enables the existence of unique digital assets that are not controlled by a central authority. The applications of such a technology are endless, and we have yet to realize its full potential. Similar to when the Internet was just starting in the 90’s, no one would have predicted the coming of Facebook and Google back then.

“SCM 2.0: Shifting to Customer-Centric Operations in E-commerce”
Customers of digital products expect platforms to know their habits and preferences, to allow personalizations and receive their services at exceptional service levels. This has pushed e-commerce businesses to re-imagine how to deliver customer demand at high customer service levels and at low operational costs.
