At BE-Wizard! I will speak about:

Can we digitize real experience?
Plenary Hall

For the last decade companies and people are trying to digitize their business or part of it. Sales, marketing, product development, customer contact, customer experience, etc... Looking at all the developments like smartphones, marketing automation, webshops, chat bots, robots, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, rating sites, peer-to-peer selling, and social media its almost like we live in a world where science fiction has become reality. It's like we don't need people or personal contact anymore to have a successful business. But is that really the case? Should you use a human touch to make a difference or is there no future for that?

I was honored to be one of the speakers at BE-Wizard! 2014 - but I benefited even more by listening to the other speakers at this must-attend event.
Greg Jarboe - Video Marketing Expert, 24/03/2014
The content was on a level I have a hard time finding anywhere. The speakers were not giving flavor of the month ideas, but very well researched, and proven theories and practices. I was blow away.
Mathew Sweezey - Principal of Marketing Insights - Salesforce,21/04/2016
The word I should have chosen is “gelato” because the conference was sweet, rich, dense and totally enjoyable. And left me wanting to come back for more.Special call outs to M. Sweezey for a powerful, clear and thought provoking take on how digital changes marketing completely. Also to C. Anderson who gave a brilliant presentation on the impact of Social Media on pricing decisions.

Be-Wizard is a big impressive event, bringing together the most learned professionals in the diverse industries, helping them network and learn from each other's knowledgable insights. Great event, great enthusiasm, great internationality!

Ambika Zutshi - Fashion design and Marketing expert, 24/03/2014
This was my very first international conference in Italy, and I think that events like BE-Wizard should be held more often in Italy. The reason is simple, you can’t do your job better, whether it’s SEO/SEM or digital marketing in general, without fresh ideas. BE-Wizard is a special event where you can learn about the international experience and grab some actionable insights for your future projects.
