Topic 2: How can you benefit from the drive for digital transformation?
Presented by: Manuela Krull-Mancinelli
Manuela Krull-Mancinelli is a. After 15 years of corporate life she founded her own company Krull Smart Solutions in 2011, helping clients during their entire innovation journey. Starting from awareness and inspiration sessions, going through experiments and finally implementing or scaling new business models. Where in operational excellence everything is built around standardizing processes with the idea to reduce errors and increase efficiency, in innovation there is no ‘one size fits all’.
Every new idea requires a fresh view on business model, team and market approach. That is what inspires Manuela to work on innovation, with clients such as students & educational institutes, start-ups, mid-size companies, corporates and public sector organisations. Synopsis
In this talk Manuela will dive into the latest technology trends and explain how ‘Travel’ becomes ‘SmartTravel’. ‘Smart’ typically refers to ‘SmartCity’. What is behind this idea and how to become part of it? Is it a free choice or will this happen anyway? What challenges do we face?
Listen to the story of digital transformation and innovation in the travel sector. Topic 3: What is design thinking and why does it matter?
Presented by; Diane Nijs is professor Imagineering at Breda University of Applied Sciences Diane Nijs is professor Imagineering at Breda University of Applied Sciences.
Working as a Belgian in the Netherlands, in 2014 she finished her promotion at the Faculty of Economics and Business at Groningen University here in the Netherlands. The title of her PhD-study is, of course, illustrative for the focus in her career: Imagineering the Butterfly Effect: Complexity and Collective Creativity in Business and Policy. Diane is a specialist in Designing for Organizational Emergence. She wrote several books and articles and is a welcomed speaker in many countries on the subject of designing for collective action whether that is in the context of start-ups or the regeneration of long existing business. Synopsis
'How great leaders inspire action' is a great TED talk of Simon Sinek in which he explains the golden circle and the importance of a clear 'WHY' to become an inspiring company. In my own work I now meet many CEO's and organizations who feel very frustrated telling me that they know very well their 'why' but that they still don't become an inspiring organization. In my presentation I will question whether knowing the 'why' is indeed the whole story to become an inspiring organization or platform. I think that GREAT DESIGN is even more important than a charismatic leader. I will show that a powerful, imaginative articulation of the WHY is a crucial ingredient in a 'startup-world' and I will illustrate my point with the case of Youth for Climate. Interactively we will discover how Youth for Climate eventually can evolve into a world-changing platform. Intro to Ana – Panel discussion
