The next generation of gamechangers

The New Insiders is a series of digital events, initiated by Accenture the Netherlands. We match global leaders with local heroes for inspiring 30-minute talks about the most exciting and pressing topics of today and tomorrow. Make sure to check in every two weeks on Thursday to get your biweekly dose of essential insights, ranging from cloud to customer experience, and from inclusion to innovation.

This live talk is recorded and will be broadcasted as a podcast one week later on Thursdays. Directly after the opening talk, we bring our clients, ecosystem and attendees together to dive deeper into sub-topics under the umbrella of the opening talk. During these roundtables or workshops, we address specific questions and challenges in virtual break-out sessions.

Don’t miss a beat and check in every Thursday to follow the live talk or listen to the podcast afterward!
