On August 28th well over 100 Belgian digital leaders gathered to network, enjoy some nice food and drinks, and learn some important lessons from 2 top leaders outside of IT.
The day started with the Program Comittee meeting. Split in 3 breakout groups, members of the Advisory Board and Peer Groups shared their key challenges for the next year, and determined a long-list of topics for the 2019 CIONET Belgium conferences. In a next step, all members of CIONET Belgium will be asked to vote on these subject, in the course of September-October.
In the main session, we were joined by other members of our community as well as the 2 keynote speakers of the event:
- Dominique Leroy, CEO of Proximus, shared her key learnings in revamping the corporate culture to enable new growth opportunities
- Prof. Koen Debackere, General Manager of KULeuven shared his insights on how corporate innovation can take multiple, sometimes confilcing forms
If you have access to the CIONET app, you can read the summaries of both speakers in the Belgian Group in the app.
