Innovator, Interconnector, Inspirer.
After years having worked as an IT Director in the Financial Services Industry, Real Estate, Health and Telecom, leading large Digital Transformation programs, Manuela stepped into the fascinating world of Innovation. “What is the impact of emerging technologies on your business?” is a question she tries to get answered together with Corporates, Startups and Cities.
Risk, legal and compliance issues in relation to new technologies is another area Manuela likes to discuss. Should we change some laws? How should we prepare our networks in terms of security, availability and speed when Blockchain or IoT applications will consume more bandwidth and capacity? What new roles and skills will be required in the near future and how do we prepare students for this new world?
Manuela likes to address these kinds of topics and discusses them with commercial and non-commercial organizations during strategic or more technical sessions.
With her open and creative mind combined with a strong focus on Digital Transformation and Innovation she helped many organisations to look differently at traditional processes.
Today, working in the SmartCity field, she brings together different stakeholders during SmartCity focused programs or events. In practical sessions she helps organisations to become aware and inspired by the new technologies and the potential to use them to design circular and sustainable innovations.
With her passion for Technology and everything that is 'new' she never stops learning about new technologies such as Blockchain, IoT, AI, 3D printing and Robots.
Her personality is best described as open, energetic, goal-oriented and organisationally sensitive. She likes to build a network and to make contact in all layers of the organization.
