Our keynote speaker Jo Caudron considers himself an entrepreneur: someone who sees change and opportunities before the rest of the market does, and then creates business around it. His areas of expertise includes media, e-business, mobile internet and social media.
Reasons to book Jo Caudron
- He started his first business when he was in his early twenties, over the last 15 years, he has been involved in a dozen of start-up companies, all in interactive media and digital innovation.
- Jo is a visionary and strategist in digital innovation, author and inspiring speaker.
- In the last decade Jo (co-)wrote five books on different transformational topics, from dealing with social media, the future of the media industry, digital transformation and now his latest book The World Is Round, about the transformation of society and how to plan for that.
Jo started his digital career somewhere in 1994. It was all a bit by accident that he discovered the internet and together with his brother and two friends, he created the first digital agency in Belgium. Now we are 25 years later and he can look back on a rich history of digital activities. Of some he’s still very proud. Others were endeavours to forget quickly. Yet all of these entrepreneurial moves made him what he is today: privileged to be in this business for over two decades, getting to know so many interesting people.
He is passionated about change and how digital is impacting everything around us. For over a decade his company Scopernia has been helping all kinds of organisations, from Denmark to Dubai with the big question: how is digital changing our very essence?
For companies this basically means understanding how business models will change. Recently Jo started thinking about how digital is impacting society as a whole. This was the driver to start writing his latest book, The World Is Round.Because of the Corona crisis, many of his ideas have become an accelerated part of our daily lives. Whereas his book gave us ample time to think about this distant future, the Corona Crisis is already forcing us to learn to deal with tomorrow’s world.
One of Jo’s real passions is to talk to people, bringing the message of change and optimism across. He has been on hundreds of stages, in about every European country and beyond.
