The next Digital Conference in Oslo Norway will feature Penang-grown Rero (yes he is a robot!)!
Time flies! It felt like it was just yesterday when I was staring blankly at the numbers on my screen, looking, trying to look as if I was hard at work, when the numbers didn’t make any sense at all. Suddenly, Tan came bursting into the office screaming on top of his lungs. We all jolted up from our seats, wondering what happened.
“Rero’s going to Oslo!” Tan said. For a moment, I couldn’t grasp what he was saying. Tan repeated again. “We’re going to Oslo!” Catching his breath, Tan then shared about the call that he had just received from Digi. We had been chosen to represent Digi at the Digital Winners Conference in Oslo, Norway.
This was such grand news for us as the Digital Winners is the Nordic region’s annual premier gathering of leaders and innovators in media, technology and communications. This opportunity means that we are able to meet high profile global speakers, and budding techno-preneurs like Sean Percival of 500 Startups, Jamie Anderson of London Business School, and Johan Brand of Kahoot!.
Wish us luck as Rero will also be pitting against the other Telenor Asian Business Units’ shortlisted representatives in a challenge to find innovation that introduces new learning concepts, in line with the theme ‘Education’.
Besides the cash prize, the winner also has the opportunity to work with Telenor Digital in special projects, and have a chance to be mentored by their engineers and industry experts.
Fast-forward a month later and here we are, looking through our final checklist to make sure we had packed everything that we need for our long-haul flight to the beautiful city of Oslo (in our lingo, also the land of Salmon). Less than couple of hours till take-off.
