About the Utopia for Beginners event
The Utopia for Beginners events
were held in order to discuss pressing questions and problems in IT. With over
250 IT Executives we explored new ways to innovate in a purposeful way. The
input came from 14 inspiring keynotes given by academics, thought leaders and
business leaders and was used in several round table discussions to learn from
peers in the same and different industries. We summarized these valuable
insights in our report ‘Utopia for Executives’ which you can download here.
