"By 2021, digital transformation initiatives in large companies will take twice as long and cost twice as much as expected,
” warns Gartner, the world's leading research and consultancy company. 

Digital transformations frequently result in significant and often unexpected costs. Especially modernizing and scaling technological solutions can quickly go over budget. Revenue growth stalls due to the increased operational complexity putting a brake on change and innovation. In a world where companies must be increasingly Agile and responsive to customer demands, customer experience is the most important factor for survival. In addition to interaction and response time, a positive customer experience increasingly depends on the degree of digitization.


During this exclusive dinner with C-level, (innovation) directors and senior managers we will come together, share knowledge, and deep dive into two aspects of this timely and critical topic:

  1. Why do transformation initiatives often cost more time and money than expected and how can you turn this around? 
  2. How can you accelerate digital transformation and what does that mean for you as a CxO?

Marco Roncaglio, Senior Director Digital & Branding at Philips—Discover how Philips became a digital frontrunner by transforming its marketing and commerce processes on a global scale.

Ludovik Auffret, Global eCommerce Director at Jacobs Douwe Egberts—The evolution of digital and e-commerce in the coffee industry has been rapid. Auffret shares how he digitally prepared JDE for future growth by enabling the company to connect with customers and consumers beyond the boundaries of traditional trade relationships. He zooms in on a customer-centric Agile approach; setting up the right team; capabilities and processes; as well as fully integrating with local markets and central marketing teams.
