Who is Jo Caudron?
Jo started his digital career somewhere in 1994. It was all a bit by accident that he discovered the internet and together with his brother and two friends, he created the first digital agency in Belgium. Now we are 25 years later and he can look back on a rich history of digital activities. Of some he's still very proud. Others were endeavours to forget quickly. Yet all of these entrepreneurial moves made him what he is today: privileged to be in this business for over two decades, getting to know so many interesting people.
Jo considers himself to be a transformation strategist. The good thing is that this profession doesn't really exist, so he doesn’t have to live up to specific standards or conventions. He is passionated about change and how digital is impacting everything around us. For over a decade his company Scopernia has been helping all kinds of organisations, from Denmark to Dubai with the big question: how is digital changing our very essence? For companies this basically means understanding how business models will change. Recently Jo started thinking about how digital is impacting society as a whole. This was the driver to start writing his latest book, The World Is Round. Because of the Corona crisis, many of his ideas have become an accelerated part of our daily lives. Whereas his book gave us ample time to think about this distant future, the Corona Crisis is already forcing us to learn to deal with tomorrow's world.
One of Jo’s real passions is to talk to people, bringing the message of change and optimism across. He has been on hundreds of stages, in about every European country and beyond.
In the last decade Jo (co-)wrote five books on different transformational topics, from dealing with social media, the future of the media industry, digital transformation and now his latest book The World Is Round, about the transformation of society and how to plan for that.
Jo Caudron is a fantastic speaker and also a very pleasant man to work with. His presentation was inspirational and met all our expectations!
The keynote by Jo Caudron, at our company event called De Digitale Werkplek, went perfectly. The content and presentation were clear and the audience was enthusiastic about everything that was addressed during the presentation.
