TM One, the enterprise and government sector business solutions arm of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), recently held its high-impact annual flagship event, LEAP Summit 2022, aimed at propelling enterprise innovation and transformation as Malaysian businesses take advantage of the nation’s initial economic recovery.

The fifth in its series, LEAP Summit 2022 was themed “Enabling Your Next: Innovate & Transform,” and it brought together world-class digital experts and over 200 of Malaysia’s top decision-makers to better understand how these leaders could unleash their innovation potential and take their businesses to the next level.

Imri Mokhtar, Group Chief Executive Officer at TM, in his welcoming address, said that increased customer expectations for digital services and platforms are reshaping how enterprises work and conduct their business.

He also explained that in order to keep up with these new trends, enterprises must fast-track their transformation to virtualised cloud-based services, leverage digital networks to modernise legacy processes, accelerate workflow efficiency and strengthen cybersecurity. This will improve business offerings and overall customer experience, leading to increased growth and profitability.

Kicking off LEAP Summit 2022 was Netflix’s Co-Founding Executive, Mitch Lowe, who emphasised the need for being brave in order to become a leader of the industry and to remain relevant. Having grown with the entertainment industry from video stores and DVD kiosks, to founding one of the most successful over-the-top (OTT) content services, Lowe shared that the habit of transformation is built by constantly looking to solve the problems faced by the customers and the industry.

Building on this need for organisations to constantly evolve, the event then featured a panel session with Paul Nicholls, Telstra Purple’s Digital Transformation Practice Leader with Telstra’s global partners Airspeeder (the F1 for Electric Flying Vehicle) and Bata Global (world’s largest shoe manufacturer), which was moderated by Ching-Fong (CF) Ong, Managing Director and Senior Partner at Boston Consulting Group. They explored real examples of transformation, spanning multiple technologies and geographies but focusing on customers.

Bringing the conversation closer to home, industry leaders Datuk Hj Bacho Pilong, Senior Vice President, Project Delivery & Technology, at PETRONAS; Fabian Bigar, Chief Executive Officer at  MyDIGITAL; Effendy Shahul Hamid, Chief Executive Officer at CIMB Digital Assets, and Dr Lim Eu Shawn, Chief Global Solutions Officer at Aerodyne Group; also weighed in on transformation within the Malaysian context and its role in future-proofing businesses and the nation to progress from surviving to thriving. This discussion was moderated by Manoj Menon, Founder of and Chief Executive Officer at twimbit.

Commenting about this year’s event, Shazurawati Abd Karim, Executive Vice President at TM One said, “TM One’s LEAP Summit is part of our continuous commitment to enable organisations to prepare for their next advantage, today and tomorrow. With one of the common challenges faced by organisations being how to start or even expand their innovation and transformation journey, we connect them to world-class leaders to open up new ideas and possibilities that enterprises can put into motion.”
