Utopia for beginners

2019 Executive Summit: Utopia for Beginners

When you were young, you had dreams. Perhaps you still have. But as a digital chief focused on delivering digital transformation, we sometimes forget to dream and explore.

However, successful companies have realized that part of the success in the digital age is keeping the chief exploration officer in you awake. After all, digital transformation is first and foremost a journey of exploration—discovering uncharted new territories.

This year’s Executive Summit is therefore a wake-up call, revitalizing your exploration skills. The point on the horizon: your Utopia.

There are important questions to consider:

  • How is your organization fostering a ‘Utopia’ that leverages technology?
  • What are the next trends in AI that could create new products, designs, and ideas?  Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) is just one of these where this area could help spike fantasy and creativity.
  • Are you catering to the needs of the post-millennials? Based on the latest insights coming from our recent research "The Synthetic Generation," we suggest another question: how do you align with not only the technical side of their behavior but also their new ethical standards to build their trust?

With so much to explore, even the most experienced executive can feel like a new beginner. At this year's Executive Summit, we want to start creating the future. Based on your expertise, the inspiration from key-note speakers, and the team effort of the attendees, we will build a new Utopia.

The Sogeti Executive Summit is a premier, invitation-only event.  As one of our most important clients, we are excited to give you the ability to register for this session now and reserve your spot.  While you are responsible for travel, Sogeti will handle your hotel accommodations.

Andrew Keen

Andrew Keen was among the earliest to write about the dangers of the Internet to our culture and society. Keen’s new book, How to Fix the Future, based on research, analysis, and Keen’s own reporting in America and around the world, showcases global solutions for our digital predicament. Keen identifies five broad strategies to tackle the digital future: competitive innovation, government regulation, consumer choice, social responsibility by business leaders, and education. How to Fix the Future has been called “the most significant work so far in an emerging body of literature…in which technology’s smartest thinkers are raising alarm bells about the state of the Internet, and laying groundwork for how to fix it”
