Unlike the previous forum, the IKF IX 2020 is held virtually, fully compliant with the health protocols, given the current pandemic has hit the vast majority of the world, including Indonesia. Nevertheless, the organizer (BCA Learning Service) strives to optimally work to make an attractive program that provide benefits and the thrill of attending a virtual intellectual forum.

Jahja added that the pandemic does not deter BCA to create and contribute in providing value added in the form of knowledge to the people of Indonesia. The virtual IKF IX 2020 is a proof that people must be able to find “opportunities” to survive a crisis. With the development of digital, information and technology, people must be able to innovate to face challenges in various levels and segments of life. The uncertainties we’re facing today should be a turning point for people to rise to the occasion and innovate in search of opportunities.
