Council Digital Transformation Development Series

We’ve been around for over ten years, back when the Internet of Things was called ubiquitous computing or ambient intelligence and the iPhone was far, far away. As an independent network of specialists, Council, just like the Internet of Things includes skills and expertise from hardware and software engineers, to designers, strategists, entrepreneurs and even policy makers. This is a challenge for everyone involved or considering using what the Internet of Things has to offer for their products, services and business in general. We want to make this simpler and help you de-risk potential investments.

Are you interested in co-creation workshops with endusers? Do you need a speaker or a moderator for your seminar, conference, or workshop? Do you want advice on the cultural context of #IoT?

The wide range of expertise in Council can facilitate any content domain. Council also is able to present full panels.
