Jean-Pascal Tricoire on Challenges Created by Digitisation


Digitisation brings with it possibilities and additional capacities, but it also creates challenges, namely:

  • Cybersecurity, as the risk of being hacked increases once one is connected.
  • Trust, and the demand for greater transparency on algorithms.
  • Upskilling people, as digitisation changes work fundamentally and requires a workforce transition.

Jean-Pascal Tricoire is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schneider Electric. In this edition of GIC Meets, he shares his views on the opportunities and challenges created by digitisation.

We were honoured to have Jean-Pascal speak on a panel at GIC Insights 2019. GIC Insights is our annual flagship event that gathers a select group of prominent business leaders to deliberate over long-term issues pertinent to the international business and investment community.
