According to a recent article by Valerie Mocker in the German daily paper Handelsblatt, digital responsibility will become one of the most important issues for businesses in the coming years. What does this mean? In a nutshell, it means companies are now expected to contribute to making digitisation a force for good. This will not happen by itself. The most important success factor for good digital responsibility is not to talk about it, but to enact it as soon as possibleI fully agree with Valerie Mocker. Based on my experience as a consultant, I strongly recommend thinking about what makes you tech as the very first step in any new venture, because action needs to be purpose driven.

“And that’s why I am a big fan of the Data Natives conference, who have chosen “What makes you tech?” being this year’s motto. 

Digital responsibility: what makes you tech?

An excellent way to get inspired and to meet the kind of people who explored these issues deeply I recommend joining this year’s Data Natives conference. This year’s theme focuses on the question “What makes you tech?

They want to turn the tide at DN19, reconnecting participants with the drive and passion that first drew them to the tech industry.

Data Natives 2019

So Data Natives ask: What Makes You Tech? A thirst for knowledge? An ambition to change the world, or revolutionise your industry? The ability to make an impact in your community, your society, on a global scale? How do we affect the future of data when we focus on the idea of motivation?

Talks and workshops this year will put purpose in the spotlight, furthering our mission to connect and inspire participants by putting the human element back in tech.
