Business Breakfast

Inspiring keynote speeches, practical insights, exciting discussions: the gateB Business Breakfast gathered around 100 marketing & communication professionals and those responsible for data & digital topics for an inspiring morning.

After a welcome address by Bastian Schneider, Chief Strategist at the Brand Leadership Circle, futurologist Nicklas Bergman spoke about the top 10 technologies to watch. He gave insights into the handling of new technologies from a business perspective: "We have to deal with new technologies without having the claim to understand everything. Be curious. Read about it. Understand the timing and impact on our environment/business. Can we challenge existing players with the new technology or are we being challenged by yet unknown companies? Can we open up a new business field? Will technology change industry logic or create a new need? Once we understand that, we have to adapt to the new reality. We must take responsibility for the use of new technology! As businessmen as well as society as a whole."
