Sam teaches Digital Marketing at the Harvard Division of Continuing Education and the University of South Florida’s Muma College of Business. He is also the co-author of the book “How To Sell Better Than Amazon” (which, thanks to the publisher, is ironically available for purchase on Amazon).”
Sam’s Keynote Session How to Survive the Future
Description: “The world is changing more rapidly than at any point in the history of our species. We have the data to back that up, but we also feel it intensely. As hard as it is in our personal lives, it is exponentially harder to lead organizations through such periods of uncertainty. The average lifespan of a company on the U.S. Fortune 500 has declined from 75 years to just 15 years, and is projected to shorten further to perhaps just 5 years.
To survive our new reality, we must change the way we think about how we design our organizations, strategies, and priorities. We must rethink the ways in which we integrate technology into our lives and businesses. Most importantly, we must adopt a new mindset of perpetual evolution.
In this session, you’ll learn specific frameworks to help you manage high-growth teams that are built from the ground-up to not only survive the future, but to take advantage of these changes to power further growth.
How does Sam Define E-Migration? “The world is changing more rapidly than at any point in the history of our species. We have the data to back that up, but we also feel it intensely. Humans are generally good at adapting to any change that happens slowly, no matter how drastic. But rapid changes can throw us into chaos. It’s not usually that we can’t see what changes the new reality requires, it’s that we can’t survive the transition from our old reality to the new. It doesn’t have to be this way, of course. Human beings can adapt to the need to adapt more rapidly and transform our lives and our professional organizations into a symbiosis with the the digital world we now inhabit.”

Digital Serbia is united by a desire to make an important contribution to progress and a better future for Serbia over the coming decade.

Stefan Salom the director of development and one of the founders of the company Infostud. He was born in 1981 in Belgrade, where he graduated from the Mathematical Gymnasium and Theoretical Physics after that.
Here you can see insights on Stefan’s career in ICT sector, ‘‘My dilemma of whether to deal with a science or business was long lasting, until finally I realized that I could get more meaningful things done in working with people and creating a new and useful business. Then I’ve finally abandoned doing business and science in parallel, quit my PhD studies in biophysics and fully devoted myself to working at Infostud. Since I was part of building the business from its very beginning, the focus of my work mostly depended on the needs of Infostud.
Ever since the founding of the company in 2000 to this day, I have been dealing with various tasks – setting up software bases, assembling sales systems and sales teams, and working on the strategic development of the entire company, its systems and individuals.
Also, among other things, I am currently in charge of developing the site www.helloworld.rs, which is fully dedicated to employment in the IT sector. I believe that IT and digital has a strong potential not only to improve lives of people from our industry, but to improve Serbia as a whole.’’

Ilija wrote this short bio while listening to Partibrejkers band and promising his two sons that he will play with them, if they give him 10 more minutes to finish up on this.
How do you define E-migration and Digital Transformation?
Let me define both terms together. E-migration and Digital Transformation are long-term initiatives that help application of new technologies. Terms are recognized in different industries, but also in many aspects of our social lives. Many risks and open questions are related to these initiatives, so it is important to understand what is to be achieved with them.
Starting his career as software developer during the period that could be considered “golden age” of the discipline, Igor Đurić obtained early exposure to innovative ways web applications and related services revolutionized not just the IT but our lives and societies themselves.
Riding the wave further, focus of his career started to switch from technology-oriented roles to those having greater focus on people crafting the technology we all appreciate and use. Being a software engineer, architect and developers’ leader over decades, he was always astonished with the massive role psychology plays in creation and maintenance of software solutions and other seemingly strictly technical systems.
In his actual work nowadays, he sees current trends of digital transformation, innovation, IoT, AI as continuation of systems and thoughts devised generations before and an opportunity to blend machines and humans in a way that will enable humans to become even more human than before.
What is E-migration for you?
Thanks to modern ICT, e-migration is a kind of immigration which does not necessarily lead to integration into new society – and consequent dissolution of ties with the country of origin. Hence, we finally got “citizens of the world” recipe for the masses.
What is Digital Transformation for you?
Another attempt to make use of the ever-elusive chance for people to be employed – less in robotic jobs, but more in jobs focused on human prosperity.
Sebastian Geschwill started his career in the IT Sector of a software company in Germany back in 1998. After finishing his study he was employed as a SysAdmin and Software Developer by the same company. During this time he mainly worked as a SysAdmin for the need of the company itself but also middle tier customer in the surrounding area, while continuing to develop software in C++ and Visual Basic.
In 2010 Sebastian was hired by Elsys Eastern Europe and relocated to Belgrade. His new assignment included the support of a Wireless R&D community within a large telecommunication equipment company. He climbed the ladder from employee to Team-Lead in 2011, and in 2012 took over the project lead in Belgrade. During this time Sebastian developed a deep understanding of the designers needs in large software projects. His favorite tool at this time was IBM Rational Clearcase, but also many internally developed tools and of course GIT with it surrounding software products like Gerrit and GitLab. From 2011 on Sebastian was often facilitated by the customer to provide trainings on the development environment to the designers and loadbuild teams on site. When in 2017 Avisto Eastern Europe opened internally the DevOps Domain, Sebastian was placed as its lead.
When he is not busy with his customer projects, Sebastian enjoys fitness, listening to music, creative cooking and gaming.
What is E-Migration? The migration of people to other countries due to job assignments in the IT sector.
What is Digital Transformation? The continued impact of the evolution of digital technology and its impact on the society…

Rafael is a Lead Developer at Budapest-based Emarsys and a frequent conference speaker. As a founding member of Emarsys CraftLab – the dedicated coaching team of Emarsys – he has taught university courses, talked at numerous conferences and visited multiple companies as an external consultant.
His passion for short feedback loops drove him to create Lean Poker, a workshop where developers have the opportunity to experiment with continuous delivery in an safe environment. He is also the creator and host of the Morning Commute YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm27Xuroww1AxPdR3Zz_5jA) inspiring the next generation of developers to broaden their knowledge. His previous talks can be viewed on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLssqJVvKKY4mJG3i5AMVjNcOxOzLJ1F28
For the very first time in his speaking career Rafael will deliver a Bootcamp: protecting the engineering culture during hyper growth
The engineering culture of a company might be a key to it’s success, yet as hyper growth kicks in it becomes hard to keep it while doubling the number of engineers every year. So the question becomes: is there a way to protect the culture, and if so, how? In this talk I will summarize my experiences of leading the Bootcamp at Emarsys. Every engineer who joins Emarsys spends the first few weeks in this team until they learn the tricks and practices that we think were essential to the success of the company.
Rafael, what do you do at Emarsys, in which programming languages and for which technologies and type of clients?
Emarsys is the largest independent marketing platform company in the world. Our software enables truly personalized, one-to-one interactions between marketers and customers across all channels — building loyalty, enriching the customer journey, and increasing revenue. This enables companies to scale marketing decisions and actions beyond human capabilities.
Founded in 2000, Emarsys began as an ESP built to provide an email solution for the European market. From there, it rapidly evolved into the global marketing platform it is today. We believe our technology truly is the answer to scaling personalization and revolutionizing the role of the modern marketer. Our approach to AI marketing allows marketers to leave the data management to the machine so they can focus on what they love: strategy, content, and creative. To create the best solutions for our clients, we invest 25% of all revenue back into the development of our products.
Rafael, What is E-migration for you?
How we run our business. Emarsys is a truly global company, we have 3.2 billion customer records from over 200 countries and 37 languages spoken in our 15 offices worldwide.
What is Digital Transformation for you?
Constantly challenging the status quo, just like at Emarsys. We are revolutionizing the Marketer’s role. The promise of marketing is to deliver truly personalized one-to-one interactions. But so far, that promise has gone unfulfilled, because human-driven personalization does not scale. Customers are interacting with more channels and creating more data than ever before. There are too many choices and too much data in today’s marketplace for the modern marketer to aggregate, analyze, interpret, and apply it all. We bring together machine learning, data science, and artificial intelligence in an innovative, easy-to-use integrated platform that allows the marketer to bridge the gap between data and true personalization.

After graduting at the Faculty of Industrial Chemistry and a decade of experience in both Process and Life Science Industries as chemical engineer working in Logisitics, Manufacturing, Quality and IT departments, Franco moved to the Information technology business.
In 1997 Franco founded MHT, an ERP & CRM global system integrator company that he ran until 2017. After a brief experience in a primary e.procuremnt business company, Franco now professionally supports primary global firms for Industry 4.0 and digital economy evolution projects.
His business and cultural proposition has always been focused on interaction and integration of technology, society, humans and manufacturing organisations.
Franco’s achievements in digital transformation include:
- Since 1997 Franco is heavenly involved in global initiatives with Confindustria and other think tanks, like SDA Bocconi and University of Padua, aimed to develop and diffuse digital culture and to breathe them to life in business and social organizations.
- As CEO of a primary global Microsoft partner, member of the Global Management Board of a global ICT a company based in Hong Kong, and through founding, developing and managing international branches, Fracno developed a wide experience on IT technology global providing.
- Recently, Franco designed and put in motion with Confindustria Serbia the DIGINDEC initiative, to bridge the Republic of Serbia and Italy in a win-win initiative to boost digital transformation in both countries.
- One of Franco’s peculiar competences is an almost wide knowledge on adopting and evolving with digital technologies in highly regulated and demanding global environment, like life science, aerospace, human care, banks, tax agencies etc.

At INAT Summit, Franco will share in a workshop how to adopt a perfect digital solution and provide a practical guide for GDPR in your global business:
- Success for any creation of man is related to its adoption by the widest people community in a reasonable time. For digital creations, if you divide the reasonable time for one thousand and if you are able to do it in that time, you are probably too slow anyway.
- Software engineers and entrepreneurs often are convinced that adoption of technology is related only to intrinsic product characteristics, like innovative technology, coolness, ease of use, integration or low costs.
- Unfortunately, every single piece of digital culture dissemination is related to a lot of social and organisations peculiarity that can delay, or even quit, the adoption of a perfect digital solution.
- In his talk Franco wil deal with how to manage the digital adoption strategy in advance, tricks and opportunities related to external regulatory constraints or social uses, and how to be proactive since the first product design . With these strategies we can prevent issues and use rules to boost the success of a digital start-up or company.
- Because of a recently required compliance to GDPR in Europe, Franco will also emphasize application of it in global business.
