According to the Accenture Technology Vision 2021, technology was a lifeline during the global pandemic – enabling new ways of working and doing business, creating new interactions and experiences, and improving health and safety. Technology forever changed expectations and behaviors and created entirely new realities across every industry. As companies shift from reacting to the crisis, to reinventing what comes next, the boldest, most visionary leaders – those who use technology to master change – will define the future, says the 21st annual report from Accenture predicting the key technology trends that will shape businesses and industries over the next three years.

12:25-12:50 The Jungle of Communication - How not to Get Lost?
When you are starting a company, you have to manage everything. Communication is not an exception. You should post on Facebook, Linked In, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok. The text is not enough. You have to make pictures and videos. Company profiles are not enough - you have to keep your personal profile up to date as well. And what about PR activities? You have to work with journalists, write blog posts. Or probably you don't have to do it. This discussion will help you understand what communication activities are really worth it in which company development stage.

14:55-15:25 Coming Closer Together. The Hybrid Transformation of B2B Communities
Before the pandemic, communities were mainly meeting regularly via real life meetings and events, and had only limited digital contact during the time between meetings and the next event. Because of Covid-19, many organisations have had to switch their working formats to digital formats. It is expected that by 2023, most of the events will have returned, but the question is – what will happen to the digital channels? Will new platforms emerge or will the established players survive and transform? How can startups use this communication transformation process in order to establish something new? Is "hybrid" only a temporary and somewhat meaningless buzzword or something really fundamental and important?

Speakers: Tassilo Ott (Talque), Kaspars Dancis (Whimsical).
