Digital transformation
👋 Hi, I am Mark. I am a strategic futurist and innovation keynote speaker. I advise governments and enterprises on emerging technologies such as AI or the metaverse. My subscribers receive a free weekly newsletter on cutting-edge technology.

Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

Recently, I launched my new concept The Digital Speaker and you can now book me as an avatar or hologram. Also, my tech trend prediction for 2021 is out, read it here!

Why Digital Transformation Has Become a Prerequisite for Success

My latest article:

Digital transformation is now a prerequisite for companies to maintain their competitive or leading position. Especially in these uncertain times, it has become apparent that digitisation is indispensable for companies if they want to be or remain successful. Successful organisations understand that only incremental improvements, i.e. doing digital, is not enough in the long term. But that transformational ad disruptive change, i.e. being digital, must be ensured.
