Katarzyna – more than 50% of her time she spends on traveling to or from the technology events around the World. That’s her job but also a big life passion. And if she is not somewhere on the way she is still a virtual attendee. She has seen both worlds – the one behind the stage and the one on the stage – and will share her experience of co-organizing the top IT Events and explaining why life interactions still matter the most, what’s hot in the industry, why Emerging Market has it’s own Silicon Valley and why events are the top strategy choices for both big player and start-ups. Kasia loves Californian climate, north India, 3D printing and is still trying to find her way around Cloud computing and Big Data. She believes that CDO – Chief Digital Officer will be in the next couple of years the hottest new job role in the market and she will definitely try to add it to her CV.
