DigitalXChange Product Talk is returning to Stockholm!
After Allan Donald’s and David Andreasson’s inspiring talks about transformation and innovation (which you can rewatch here and here) we’re happy to bring two new great speakers to the capital of Sweden!
Sarah Barslund Lauridsen is joining us from Copenhagen to talk about how to create a startup-like digital functions within a large organisation while Simone van Neerven is flying in from Barcelona to explain how she has put human centered design in the heart of their innovation strategy and share examples on how they do that in practice.
Sarah was the Head of Digital Platforms and Marketing at Nordea Markets. She is an experienced strategic leader who has built and led a large cross border digital organisation and spearheaded a digital transformation in a large organisation. She has been end to end responsible for all parts of the digital value chain from digital business development and strategy via IT development to customer support and data science. Previously she worked for Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs.
Simone is currently the Head of Innovation at Vueling Airlines where she is responsible for designing, building and launching innovative new solutions to address opportunities and take Vueling to a new level of success, mixing business needs and innovative technology. Previously she worked for KLM and GE.
We believe that product is a fascinating field where some do it better than others. The way people do product differs from city to city. A great way to be up to date and learn best practices is meeting leaders from different industries and different cities. ProductTalk is looking to do just that: bring talent from other parts of the world to your city, while finding the best local players.
Not all who wander are lost: there will also be a job board with (product) career opportunities at companies around Europe. (If you’re looking to hire, we could promote the job opening)
Of course, there will be plenty of drinks, snacks, and takeaways.
Last but not least, the first 30 people to arrive will have the chance to win a JBL Bluetooth speaker 🙂
