Guest Speaker and Chairman of the Channels Media Group, Dr. John Momoh, while delivering his speech on “New Business Initiatives in the Digital Era”, posited that the digital era is an amazing era for growth and development with opportunities for simplified affairs if exploited in resolving prevalent global issues.
The immersion of technology and innovation in the digital age, the Channels boss said could help save cost through effective and impactful ideas that would largely improve the standard of life and longevity of the people.
“We can survive in the digital age by prioritising the end users in innovating to meet their needs and giving them the satisfaction that they desire. To achieve this, we need to surround ourselves with digital energisers and be flexible and adaptive to new knowledge and above all, possess passion in all we do.” he said.
