Chief Operating Officer


Is the end in sight for the Philippine growth miracle? Over the past decade, Philippines was one of the world’s economic stars.

Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) has been the primary sector responsible for this growth. Employing a million-and-a-half well paid knowledge workers clear across the nation, it continues to grow at double digit rates and its success seems taken for granted.

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) could disrupt this happy-go-lucky situation. Various pilot projects, are already in advanced stages with implementation around the corner.

It is already sending jitters across government and the private sector but there is no escape, accepting the future is the only option — and the faster the better.

What will be the impact on the Philippine labor force?
Can Philippines continue to grow or is the end in sight?
What do government and the private sector need to do?

Hear Craig Reines, of Sitel APAC, tell what the future will look like for nation’s most important growth industry.

Craig is easily one of the most traveled senior leader in his industry. He has led large operations across the world based in the US, UK, Hong Kong, Australia and Philippines.

Pardon the Inconvenience... Trying to Change the World


Asia TECH Summit 2017, presented by SPi Global, with Elite Sponsorship by JLL, Regus and Sprout Solutions. Pardon the Inconvenience… Trying to Change the World.

Because of its young demographics and technology affinity, Philippines will experience a spectacular tipping point over the next 1-2 years. Almost no country in the world will experience the intensity of technology disruption more.

Virtually all industries will be impacted and many will go the way of print media and travel agency that we all see collapsing before our eyes.

Don’t stand there watching it all happen! Be the disruptor or be driven out of your business and your career.

The changes ahead will certainly improve all our lives in the long run because of lower costs, fewer hassles and more time for enjoying life. BUT, the short-term impact will be severe for those on the wrong side of it.
