EGGS for Breakfast: Enabling green transition from strategy to end-users
May 23, 2023, kl 08:00-10:00 | EGGS Design Copenhagen
Welcome to our popular breakfast seminar, EGGS for Breakfast - a networking and knowledge sharing event for industry leaders, experts and innovators. This time, we’ll take a deep dive into how you can use strategic foresight and user-centred processes to power the green shift within your organisation.
At the seminar, you will meet Navid Ostadian-Binai, Head of Green Vessels and Fuels at Maersk Tankers, as well as EGGS’ Energy Lead, Kate Saunders and Katja Egmose, Director of EGGS Denmark.
Early-mover ventures in the green transition come with high risk and uncertainty, but also with potential long-term advantages. Navid will share his insights about how he uses strategic foresight, corporate unfair advantages and startup-like operating models to make an impact on people, planet and profit.
Digitalisation and data are crucial for the green transition, but a user-centred approach is necessary to avoid unfit digital tools and workflows. Kate will discuss how EGGS' collaboration with Statnett and Cognite used cross-disciplinary teams and close involvement of end-users to digitise selected value chains and improve accessibility of power system and asset data.
