How the World Bank digitally empowers the young in developing nations
This episode of Digital Workplace Impact takes us on a tour of the globe and explores how technology is enabling developing nations to kickstart their economies and inspire their younger generations. Paul Miller speaks with Samia Melhem, Global Digital Development Lead at the World Bank’s Transport and ICT Practice.
With a dramatic rise in entrepreneurial spirit among the young, as well as the speed of response that comes with social media, governments need to digitally modernize from within to inspire and cater for the needs of their fledgling citizens. Paul and Samia discuss what is needed to drive these projects forward to a successful completion; how the word is spreading; and why ICT (information communication technology) has been key to the breakthrough in so many developing countries.
How and why physical workplaces change the way we work

Tune in to hear the trio discuss the impact of wellbeing on employee output; how digital workplaces can have an adverse effect on our wellbeing; balancing company and local cultures; and napping at work!

How NASA explores digital space in the 21st century
Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accumulated a wealth of data and information as part of its spectacular research programme. One of its most significant challenges is how to turn this data and information into actionable knowledge. As Chief Knowledge Architect, our guest, David Meza grapples with this challenge every day.
Hear David’s thoughts on what it’s like to work at NASA; our (sometimes unhealthy) dependency on technology; and how the digital workplace has influenced team dynamics (and the demise of the ego!).
