Case study speaker
'Co-creation: creating value together'
Communicating about or ‘in name of’ the customer no longer yields the same results; communicating with consumers has the future. Take that a step further and it takes you to co-creation: the productive cooperation between an organisation and its end-users.
Although co-creation is beyond the hype, and many organisations have embraced the idea of collaboration, there is still lots of confusion on how to effectively implement co-creation. In his presentation Maarten discribes his view and explains the difference between 'incomplete' and 'complete' co-creation. He will share key learnings from his experience as Head of Co-creation and People Insight at Philips Lighting and the influence of the co-creative mindset throughout the organisation. In a practical session he will take you on a journey of co-creation within the 125 years old pioneer and global leader in lighting and intelligent lighting systems.
