"What really matters in digital?" asks Christophe Asselin, head of ad:tech UK. "Techno jargon and buzz words are often a smokescreen for practitioners, a boundary to leverage the true power of digital for their business and ultimately inspire their clients.
"Our industry needs clarity, truthfulness and humility. Only those who aspire to experiment, fail forward, learn from their mistakes and adapt quickly will thrive in the current turbulent climate. All practitioners and decision-makers must unpick past assumptions, revise old theories and re-establish new essentials for their businesses. This requires all of us to continuously ask the right questions, source the best answers and understand how to drive required organisational changes. ad:tech London was established to help you navigate this changing world by enabling peer-to-peer exchanges, enlivening industry debate and ultimately clarifying what does matter."
