Kamel Amroune gave the floor to the minister of the Economy, Franz Fayot, who delivered an inspiring opening speech by video. His intervention was followed by welcoming remarks from Martin Wolfram, Country Managing Director Luxembourg, Accenture.

Keynotes and Round Table

To explore further the theme of the day, TechSense invited two keynote speakers, Kris Howard, Head of Developer Relations APJ, Amazon Web Services, and Tom Ghelen, Technology Innovation Lead, Accenture.

"Human-first Innovation"

"Amazon set itself the goal of becoming Earth’s most customer-centric company", stated Kris Howard. "Rather than focus on what our competitors are doing or inventing technology in a vacuum, our focus is solely on innovating new solutions that make people’s lives better, to give them a customer experience that is easier, faster, better, and more cost-effective", she explained.?

?Kris Howard also shared some stories of Luxembourg companies and organizations who are leveraging the Cloud to improve people’s lives. She talked about some of humanity’s biggest challenges around sustainability and closing the technology skills gap, and how Amazon is trying to help.

"Radically Human"

"By Radically Human, we are talking about technologies that are rooted in human capabilities, but are also revolutionary", said Tom Ghelen. He told the audience that, based on this, a new path to business success is emerging. And to begin solving the equation, business leaders must flip commonly held assumptions around five business fundamentals – Intelligence, Data, Expertise, Architecture, and Strategy. "With IDEAS, companies large and small have an innovation framework to re-evaluate and revolutionize the core building blocks of the enterprise", he said.

"Competing in the Radically Human Future" round table

The keynotes were followed by a round table session entitled "How to compete successfully in the radically human future?" and moderated by Rudy Mazzalovo, Managing Director Transformation Partnerships Europe, Accenture. Panelists were Sasha Baillie, CEO of Luxinnovation, Olivier Beaujean, CIO of Cargolux,  Vincent Arnal, CIO of LALUX, and Jerry Grbic, CEO of ABBL.

The afternoon sessions ended on a light note with one-man shows by humorists Redouanne Harjane, Ayoub Marceau, and Marine Ella.

Mr Bettel's speech was followed by the prize-giving ceremony & dinner. The evening ended with a warm and friendly after-party.
