Becoming one of the greenest telecom companies globally is no simple feat. Nonetheless, Dutch-born KPN accomplished it. In 2011, KPN has transitioned to green electricity, achieved climate neutrality in 2015, and aims for circularity by 2025. Such an accomplishment can only be achieved with the right people, one of them being Jeroen Wegkamp, CPO at KPN. Jeroen spearheads the strategy to reach goals such as Net Zero within the whole supply chain by 2040 while maintaining a seamless connection to procurement. Within the strategy, he touches upon several challenges such as partnership, digitalisation and securing the right talent.
During this Vision Dinner, Jeroen will take you through KPN’s journey. He will share lessons learned as well as give a glimpse of what KPN’s future holds. Additionally, he will challenge you with questions about how the word partnership can be given more meaning. Afterwards there is the opportunity for networking and you will be able to experience the latest BMW products.

Gen AI changes the strategic positioning of data governance within Tata Steel Netherlands. Rich opportunities arise, such as improved data classification, increased employee efficiency, and collaborative decision-making. Though Gen AI has much potential, it also presents risks and concerns, which hinder adoption. Implementing Gen AI solutions requires careful consideration. For instance, how is data secured? How do you ensure that the LLM does not unlock information that should not be unlocked due to sensitive or outdated data? And finally, how do you balance responsible use and maximized value simultaneously? During this Vision Dinner, Leonoor van der Beek, Head of Data Governance at Tata Steel Netherlands, will explain how she strives for the right balance and which data governance frameworks she applies. She will demonstrate this with a number of use cases. After the presentation, you will enter into a moderated discussion around the practicalities and impact of Gen AI. You are most welcome to join!
