The Digital Transformation course taught by Qusay Al-Maatouk brought to light a lot of the actions we had taken to make technology work for our customers, especially during the Covid lockdown. But additionally, it gave us a vision for new pathways of working and leveraging the digital world which we had not known about beforehand.
