Can you tell us more about your role as a Chief Strategy Officer and your vision for Digital Transformation?

My role currently is a chief strategy officer, my key responsibility involves planning strategy and mapping out project details. That includes how we’ll be integrating technology into our initiatives. I find it to be very challenging at the same time, I find it to be very fulfilling because I get to incorporate technology into our projects and how to make things better and more efficient. In terms of digital transformation, we all know that technology is used widely in almost every industry. However, I hope that this transformation brings us wellness and efficiency so that the protection of our privacy or each of us individually is very much more intact.

How can you inspire tech leaders in your Digital Transformation journey as an IT Leader in Malaysia? 

Just remember that every little step counts. For all the technology leaders out there, no matter how little you think you’re doing it, what’s important is that you are moving towards it. Nothing happens overnight so we must always remember that digital transformation is a journey, it’s not a destination. As technology evolves, our needs and wants also keep on changing. For all of us that are a part of this journey, we have to keep on learning to know what’s out there and then to know what else we have to learn. That’s one thing that I would like everybody to bear in mind.

What are the core values that you can share with your audience? Why do you have that burning passion for transformation? 

I do believe that each and every one of us should have positivity in our thinking because that brings us resiliency. Things can get tough sometimes. Whether on a personal journey, or a company’s journey, once in a while we meet a bump or are facing a hurdle. I think your attitude towards problems, difficulties, and adversities is the most important factor in overcoming them. Nothing is ever rosy all the time, and resilience is especially important today because the business environment is becoming more dynamic and unpredictable.

Dr. Carrine Teoh’s dream of women leading the way to Digital Transformation.

I want to touch on championing women in technology. That’s what I’d like to see more and would like to bring into focus. Women have a decisive role to play in shaping the digital transformation and ensuring that it contributes to a better future, to beat the ever-changing technology, we need diversity in solutions, we need diversity in our thinking methods.

What is your message to all the tech leaders in Malaysia?

I would like to highlight that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We always have to remember that if we do more collaboration and work together as a whole, we are much more than each of us being individually counted on. I’m looking forward to more collaboration, sharing of knowledge, and working together with all of the technology leaders out there.
