Pre-Work Talk Munich What is digital transformation anyway?

Munich
If someone randomly asked you the question: "What is digital transformation?" how easily could you answer it? When we recently quizzed some of our friends on this point, many found themselves surprisingly stumped. So on April 20, at our Munich Pre-Work Talk, we're going to explore what this ubiquitous term really means, and take a look at the impact of digital transformation on society as a whole.

In addition to turning the mic on the audience, we’re very excited to be joined by Tech Ethicist Matthew Stender. As a researcher and advocate whose work focuses on the cultural implications of emerging technologies, he’ll discuss what it means to be human in the 21st century, and the need to reshape the infrastructures that are currently dominating the majority of the digital world.

As many people in our community are involved in the business of “digital transformation”, we want hear your thoughts and spark a wider discussion around the human side of our digital lives, and how we can ensure we remain on track to create positive impact in the future.

See you at our Munich studio on Thursday, April 20. Doors open at 8:30am, and talks take place from 9 – 10am. Let us know if you can make it by RSVPing at our Facebook event page
