Missed this year's #ThinkPH summit? Here's your chance to catch some of the talks and presentations from the summit

MANILA, Philippines –  How can organizations – from industry leaders to tech startups – harness creativity, technology, and innovation towards progress and nation building?

This was the main question tackled by Rappler and its roster of international and local experts during the 3rd ThinkPH summit held on July 21 at the  Newport Performing Arts Theater in Pasay.

During the tech summit which focused on disruptive thinking, digital experts agreed that the age of tech disruption is already upon us and that we have to brace ourselves for its impact.

“There’s a tsunami of exponential technologies that will disrupt organizations and businesses. [But] most people will just stay put. They won’t be able to disrupt until it’s too late,” said Yuri Van Geest, co-author of Exponential Organizations.

The prevailing note at #ThinkPH is that, in the coming years, big companies and individuals will have true equal capability to make a difference.

To further the lessons and messages from the tech summit, MovePH, Rappler’s civic-engagement arm, will host a viewing party for its partners and the public on Saturday, September 10. This will be held at the Rappler headquarters.
