I participated as a speaker on an event called “Competence – The opportunities and challenges of digitalisation” on Friday the 22nd of November. It was indeed super relevant and interesting! I wrote around 10 pages of notes from the event and it was really very interesting. I will definitely attend if similar events are organised again!
Somehow I got into a mode of being very funny, and people really laughed at my horrible numbers about failures related to IT in organisations and generally they thought I was quite funny. People also came up to me thanking me for a very interesting presentation, and the speaker after me started off by saying: “Well, it is not easy to give a seminar after such a funny speaker”. Being perceived as really funny was indeed a new experience for me!
I sometimes give very similar lectures to this one for students at the university – an there no one laughs! They hardly look at me while talking, and few pay attention. Obviously different groups of people enjoy different things. 😮
This was the information about the event: Do you run strategic issues related to skills supply, labor market and digitalization? Don’t miss our inspiring day with research and practical examples in the areas of skills provision, digitization and adult education. During the day, you will receive the latest research, examples from the construction and trade industries, and the opportunity to network with participants from municipalities, authorities and educational institutions.
The day was free of charge.
