May 26 - 27, 2022 in Austin, TX






For many of us, life seems to have been on hold for nearly two years. The pandemic has forced organizations to rethink every aspect of their business, embracing a new level of creativity to adapt to this new world. 

With this, we should not be surprised that some organizations will emerge from this crisis stronger, more agile, more creative, and more resilient than ever before. It is similar to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar transforming into a fluttering butterfly: change can bring a beautiful, new beginning.

  • So what lessons has the crisis taught us?
  • What are the prerequisites for success in the post-pandemic era?
  • How is technology enabling this reinvention? 

These questions will be at the heart of this year’s Sogeti Executive Summit.

Although much is still uncertain, what is already clear is that organizations can only morph themselves into something more beautiful by looking inwards, not outwards. So, what will be your inward response to these metamorphoses?

  • From the 2D internet to the 3D metaverse
  • From wasteful production to a regenerative economy
  • From physical experiences to virtual transformations
  • From life-time employment to the gig-economy
  • From surveillance capitalism to digital happiness
  • From data processing to empathic computing

Our 2022 Sogeti Executive Summit is an invitation-only event that will feature a diverse group of inspiring speakers, exciting small-group discussions, and unique experiences to enjoy the vibrant Austin culture.
