René Speelman

Who is René Speelman?
I am director of Group CSR Sogeti. If you want to be a star enterprise you do your utmost for your customers, for your employers and for society. That all in the right balance, knowing they also have an influence on each other. On a daily basis I like to work with society, mainly corporate social responsibility. The main themes are our care for the environment, our care for our fellow man and inclusiveness. I’m the initiator of ProjectB, the challenge for all ICT student to come up with an innovation for people with a disability and prototype it. Besides that I facilitate strategic- and brainstorm session. If there is some time left, I like to make illustrations.

What do you see as an innovation for the future of ICT?
The current and future ICT worker has a broad scale of expertise and abilities. I hope the ICTalent Awards innovations are an example of those. I will pay attention how the end user is involved in the development of the innovation. Coming from my work I’ll have a keen observation for innovations which will aide to corporate social responsibility.

What are you looking forward tof or the ICTalent Awards?
Of course I’m extremely curious for all the brilliant ideas from the students and I’m already looking forward to the presentations which will boast with pride and passion.
