The Event Program

Jo Caudron
Founding Partner

I've started my digital career somewhere in 1994. It was all a bit by accident that I discovered the internet and together with my brother and two friends, I created the first digital agency in Belgium. Now we are 25 years later and I can look back on a rich history of digital activities. Of some I'm still very proud. Others were endeavours to forget quickly. Yet all of these entrepreneurial moves made me what I am today: privileged to be in this business for over two decades, getting to know so many interesting people. I consider myself to be a transformation strategist. The good thing is that this profession doesn't really exist, so I don't have to live up to specific standards or conventions. I'm passionated about change and how digital is impacting everything around us. For over a decade my company Duval Union Consulting (recently renamed: Scopernia) has been helping all kinds of organisations, from Denmark to Dubai with the big question: how is digital changing our very essence? For companies this basically means understanding how business models will change. Recently I've started thinking about how digital is impacting society as a whole. This was the driver to start writing my latest book, "De Wereld is Rond". P.S.: every participant will go home with this latest bestseller!

The World is Round: Mastering the Metastorm in Society

Thursday Sep 24, 2020 02:15 - 02:45
Venue: CIRCL

We are living in unprecedented times. Topics like automation & AI, jobs & income, longevity, climate change, economic decline, migration, globalisation and political polarisation are on everyone’s agenda. We are facing a Metastorm in which digital and societal disruptions are challenging our foundations. How we work, live and move around will never be the same again. This will put pressure on society and consequently influencing the way we do business.

This presentation goes beyond Digital Transformation. It is an antidote to the emerging pessimism and shows that it is possible to create an optimistic, yet realistic vision of a future in which we can plan for growth of people, society and the economy. Because the world is round!
