Women In Leadership Discuss The Future Of Digital

A new generation of leaders is shaking up the worlds of data, tech and digital marketing. Women are shaping transformation within their specific industry and are pivotal to the future of digital. As part of International Women’s Day, we’re bringing a panel of influential women together to discuss what’s next for the industry.

These female leaders will share how they experienced 2020 and what they think the world will look like after the pandemic. Whether it’s about the importance of cross-functional and diverse teams, how to build trust and loyalty, to adapting to new and virtual customer experiences.

Join us to watch this insightful discussion with our guests: Nathalie Nijhuis-Lam, Head of Global Sponsorship and Lead Inclusion & Diversity at Philips and Andrea-Sibylle Ebinger, CEO of Hessnatur. Watch this space for a third panellist soon to be announced.
