INNOVATORS AT MAZARS
Innovation and transformation are words that we hear, read or write several times a day. But how do we make sense of all these new technological, societal or business trends? How do companies implement some of these changes in practice? And most importantly, how do businesses move from ‘doing’ digital to ‘being’ digital?
To start answering these questions, we invite you to discover “Innovators At Mazars”. Meet the faces of innovation and transformation at Mazars: they are diverse, international, entrepreneurial, talented and most importantly, human. In a world of uncertainty, what is certain is that all industries, sectors and professions are being impacted by change. Today, innovation is simply no longer reserved to a mere few geeks.
Join us on a journey that will demystify and simplify, but also explain pragmatically how some concepts and technologies are being applied concretely in companies to solve real life issues. It is also the occasion to revisit certain ideas, as well as to imagine what the future holds.
