About this event

Digitalization is one of the buzzwords these days that nobody gets tired of using. It seems to be fitting in almost any context. A lot of the more general discussion seems to revolve around how everything is shifting to the internet, how things are becoming digital, and sometimes it is reduced to a discussion purely about the need for broadband internet access. None of these viewpoints are wrong, but most of the time they fall far too short, with an understanding of digitalization that is far more holistic actually being needed.

In the end, digitalization will affect every single business, from large enterprises to the small mom and pop store around the corner. And while the large corporations have picked up on digitalization and hired smart people to figure out how to deal with it, many entrepreneurs and small business owners have not even realised the magnitude of the change ahead of them.

Join us in conversation with GoDaddy EMEA VP Stefano Maruzzi as we uncover how SMEs can stand out from the crowd and find their target customers in a changing business environment.
