To ensure continued economic growth and create prosperity, it is crucial forbusinesses to build a social contract of trust around data-gathering and sharing. The starting point of the debate during this exclusive round table discussion are the findings of the 20th edition of the IBM Global C-suite Study conducted by the IBM Institute for Business Value, in cooperation with Oxford Economics.
We will discuss how you continuously leverage data to build customer trust,create cultures of data-based decision makers and become adept at sharing data with ecosystem partners without giving away competitive edge.
Wouter Denayer, CTO IBM Belgium and Erwin Verstraelen, Chief Digital Information & Innovation Officer at the Port of Antwerp, will moderate the discussion and share their point of view on the findings.
Comedian Bert Gabriëls joins our panel to enlighten the discussion with his unsalted view and with a clear mission to draw serious conclusions.

I grew up with some some quotes from my dad in mind. Since then, I've developed a few on my own that guide my view on the world" A gift is a gift and not a given. The more you work on developing the gift, the more it becomes a given. So my gift to you: make your gift a given""In life there are problems, challenges and opportunities. That's actually three times the same thing, only the mindset is different""For as long that you are not sure a solution cannot be found, a problem is not a problem but a challenge. And even if it turns out a solution is impossible, the journey of trying to find one has been an experience"
