Managing Director – Head of Accenture Technology Labs in Europe

What will the new, “post-digital” world look like? The coming era will be characterized by massive pressure as customers, employees and society make their demands known. But it will also provide tremendous opportunities for those companies that can deliver the appropriate experience at just the right time.
