Annemieke Bulters, Enexis
Director Portfoliomanagement & Chief Data & Digital Officer
Annemieke studied organizational psychology at Utrecht University and later business administration at the University of Amsterdam, where she graduated cum laude. After working at Accenture, she started at Enexis Group in 2014; where she has been responsible for the Data & Digital department for a few years now. This new department has been established to realize value from data and (new) digital technologies faster, better, and more effectively, so that the strategic goals of Enexis Groep can be achieved. Her background in psychology is useful in this role because the focus is not only on the technological opportunities, but also on the adoption in the organization, ensuring a more data-mature organization and digital-fit workforce.
To accelerate the energy transition, and to contribute to excellent grid management, Enexis fosters a data- driven culture. However, cultural change is difficult, especially when pushed top-down. Therefore, Enexis opted for a bottom-up approach, using internal influencers to demonstrate the added value of data for specific departments. This approach hinges on creating a sense of urgency and selectively addressing departments to achieve quicker adoption. But as an organisation, how do you prepare to be ready for implementing tailored solutions for departments? How do you manage the scarcity of time and assets so you are ready to help the right department at the right time?

This session is part of the Data & Analytics Platform, a collaborative initiative by Capgemini, Dataiku, and Snowflake to establish a strong network in which data executives from the leading companies of the Netherlands can exchange knowledge, openly discuss challenges, and cooperate on becoming more data-powered. In four sessions per year, the platform inspires and supports organisations in harnessing data effectively to become as impactful as possible and continue to create value. The combination of the extensive knowledge of the platform’s partners and the experience of the high-level speakers from a variety of backgrounds empower participants to embrace change, break silos, and democratise data in their own companies.
Directors of Data
The Province of North Brabant aims to be a pioneer in the field of data and digitalization. Currently, the province is taking steps to address policy issues in areas such as mobility, environment, and energy using data. While the potential of data is evident, the transition from data to insights and subsequently formulating more effective policies presents challenges. This includes the need to bring together the often still separate worlds of data experts and policymakers and to adapt policy processes accordingly. It also requires the development of new knowledge and skills. During this Vision Dinner, Marcel Thaens, CIO at the Province of North Brabant, will share how he creates the conditions for optimal use of data. He will address topics such as how he encourages closer collaboration between policymakers and data experts. Additionally, he will discuss how he ensures the quality of data in the organization and how he manages ethical and legal aspects, especially in light of the upcoming mandatory algorithm registry. If you are interested in these themes, you are more than welcome to be inspired by Marcel's story and engage in conversation with him and the other participants!
KLM is pioneering a revolutionary way to deal with this issue by using a more data-driven approach in strategic workforce planning. In their view the coming scarcity of experienced personnel can be combatted by more efficiently matching people and skills by using AI / Data Science. Through better use of the data the company already has, KLM will be able to easier match the skills-languages of worker and employer which enables them to tackle the skills gap more efficiently, working multi-disciplinary using the build/buy/borrow methodology. And the data will even allow KLM to match specific individuals to specific jobs. Join us at this Vision Dinner on the 17th of January to listen to Annelies and Yvette’s approach to these issues. There will be ample opportunity for networking, both over dinner and afterwards, so be sure to sign up!
The construction sector plays a significant role in contributing to greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, and waste generation. Recognizing this, BAM has developed a strategic plan that aims to actively contribute to a sustainable future, aligning with the increasing emphasis and necessity of sustainability. BAM's clients now prioritize conserving resources, promoting energy efficiency, and reducing carbon emissions throughout all stages of their projects, from design to construction and operation. However, it is important to note that while clients prioritize sustainability, they may not always be willing to bear the full cost associated with these efforts. This presents a challenge that many Sales, Commercial, and Strategy Leaders face. Sander will highlight how sustainability practices impact their commercial strategy and how they orchestrate the promotion of sustainable practices in their ecosystem of partners. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity for an open discussion with Sander and the other participants. You are most welcome to join!
