UTS Students Propose Citizens Heroes Initiative with
Accenture at Sydney CDO Summit

The CDO Summit is the premier event for digital & data leaders
November 16-17, 2016 
Washington D.C., USA

Deaths due to ambulance delay may disappear in ten years’ time in Australia.

And amazingly it’s all thanks to a two-day project by a group of UTS Business School students.

They outlined their proposal, titled “Citizen Heroes – Digital Creativity and Social Design”, at the inaugural Sydney CDO Summit, presented by Accenture Digital on 1 March, 2016.

The multi-disciplinary team worked with mentors from industry partner Accenture Digital, which sponsored the Sydney CDO Summit.

“We’re preparing students not for jobs that exist, but for jobs that don’t exist, and about half of current jobs won’t exist in ten years’ time,” said Roy Green, Dean of the UTS Business School, as he introduced the students responsible for the project at the end of his lunch-time keynote at the Sydney CDO Summit.

Click below to see the video on how the application developed by these incredible students may one day save your life.

And if these students could change so much in just two days, imagine how much will change just a year after our first event in Australia!

Where in the world is the CDO trend occurring now?

Research from our CDO Talent Map indicates that Asia is experiencing a surge in CDO hires, just as North America, the UK, and Europe have had in years past.

That’s why David Mathison, Founder and CEO of the CDO Club, is in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to speak at the
Digital Integration & Business Transformation Asia event on August 3 and 4, 2016 at the JW Marriott.

On the first day, Wednesday August 3 at 4pm MYT, Mathison will keynote on “Using Digital Transformation to Break Down Organizational Silos.” 

And as Chairperson of Day 2, Mathison will deliver the Opening Remarks on Thursday August 4 at 08:45am MYT. At 09:00am, he will moderate a panel on “Change in Leadership: Do you need a CDO?” 

The session will explore how companies drive digital change — whether that’s through a reorganization of the CIO, CTO, and CMO roles, or by hiring a Chief Digital Officer.

Panelists include Donald Lim, Chief Digital Officer at ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation, Philippines, and John Kerr, Global Chief Digital Officer at ZENO Group, Singapore.

At 2:00pm MYT on Thursday, Mathison will deliver a presentation on behalf of
Centric Digital titled “Developing a Digital Strategy: Building Blocks Required,” using case studies and data points provided by Brian Manning, President & Chief Digital Officer at Centric Digital, from Manning’s keynote at the 4th annual NYC CDO Summit on April 27, 2016, which was sponsored by Centric Digital.

This presentation and case study will provide a blueprint for developing and implementing a business case for digital transformation, specifically targeted at companies in Asia that are still in the early stages of transformation.
