About Me…but really, About You
Well, my name is Lambert Yubin – but feel free to call me Lamby.
If you found me here, I’m guessing you have a passion for digital transformation.
- You’re overwhelmed by all the hype around disruption, artificial intelligence, the internet of things, blockchain, Big Data and you don’t know exactly what this means to you and the future of your job.
- You see your organization making progress to transform the customer experience, the business model, or even automate processes, and you want to be among the few people taking part in these conversations.
- You own a business today and kind of wonder how you could use technologies to win the competition.
Regardless, you’ve come to the right place.
My mission is to prepare you for a changing world.
Here’s what I believe
The world is experiencing a fundamental shift that will affect almost all aspects of our lives.
And over the next few decades everything you and I know about how society and organizations function is going to change — dramatically.
And, as you might expect, that’s going to have a significant impact on our lives and on the nature of how we work.
Technology is fueling this disruption, transformation, or whatever you want to call it, but this story isn’t really about technology.
Instead, this story is about how technology is enabling some fundamental shifts in how the world works — and what we, as leaders and as people, need to do to prepare for what is already happening.
Whether you’re the CEO of one of the largest companies in the world, a mid-level manager, an entrepreneur, still looking for a job, or almost anyone in between, this is going to affect you.
And so my mission is to help you see what is happening and help you and your organization (even if it’s an organization of one!) find a path into this future that will allow you to thrive.
Short Story, plus What I do
10 years ago, while still in engineering school, I started research on how digital technologies were shaping the future of work.
In fact, I was addicted to seminars and webinars where I met industry leaders, showed them some software I developed to solve business problems – and they guided me too.
Then one day I met an industry leader that later became my mentor. In fact, I went to him confidently to sell software. The next school year was about to resume and I needed cash.
But I was not lucky this time. Not only was it hard to get the attention I needed to present the solution, but when I finally did, it was a big NO! So hard to digest at that time.
Fast forward one year, and in the same event, we met again and he was open enough to tell me why he didn’t buy the software. But that was not all! He spent time and coached me that same evening. Such a cool guy I was lucky to meet. And this marked the beginning of an important shift in my mindset.
I started looking at problems in a different way. Not more like a pure technical guru that locks up himself for month to build something great, before going out there to meet the first customer.
And this shaped almost all my decisions later. Like the kind of jobs I took, the type of challenges I took, and most importantly I became a life-long learner. Yeah, till today.
So this landed me in the Consulting industry where I am today, after working in the Telecoms, IT, and agriculture industries. And my job in these industries was always around managing digital platforms, as well as building and coordinating ecosystems of digital partners.
In fact, back then, I strongly believed I’ll end up in consulting because I’d never really stopped consulting work since I met my mentor.
That’s to say I spent significant free time hunting any available opportunity to help businesses solve one or two problems, no matter how small. And I strongly believe this built the passion I have today for solving problems, which is central to my work today as a consultant. A very passionate one !!
So, here’s what I do today
Three things – I consult. I train. And I speak.
First, as a consultant, I help businesses to succeed with digital transformation. And this is often about how they can transform their customer experience, automate processes, as well as completely transform their business models.
All these with the help of digital technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, and Big Data Analytics. And I’ve done this for the telecoms, retail, media, financial services, health, and education industries.
Second, as a trainer, I equip business leaders with the skills they need to lead and manage digital transformation. So I start by helping them understand digital technologies that are shaping their industry or market, as well as disruptive trends.
Then I train them on leadership stuff like how they can envision new business models, new customer processes, or new processes with the aid of digital technologies. And how they can engage the organization, overcome obstacles, and other things that have to do with leading successful transformation.
And then third, as a speaker, I’m often invited to strategic executive meetings, and company events, either in person or through an online webinar. And so I purposely speak to inform, to persuade, or to inspire the audience, as per their need. As you may now guess, I speak on topics around digital transformation, digital technologies, and the future of work.
So that’s it. Those are the three things I spend my time doing.
