WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN

At WORLDWEBFORUM, we are all interested in digital transformation and how to update ourselves and our businesses effectively throughout the entire organization.

So what do Fox Networks, Burberry and Walmart Asia have in common? They are all mega-corporations that have successfully undergone digital transformation under the helm of Fumbi Chimba, a technology chief who has brought her passion for diversity and practical education with her across her transitions between the broadcast, fashion and retail industries.
