Without being bothered by the lack of any formal technological education, Laura is passionate about technology. Or rather, Laura is passionate about the possibilities that new technologies bring for the advancement of mankind. Yes, this sounds rather grand and large, but having a Masters in Public International Law –with a focus on international human rights- tends to do that to a person.
In her role in the Digital Transformation team within KPN, she feels like she gets paid to do her hobby. She takes the time to understand new technologies, such as artificial intelligence or Network Function Virtualisation. Not with the goal to gain the technological know how, but with the goal to identify how KPN’s customers will benefit from these technologies. Only when we find the intersection between customer pull and technology push, we will find the sweet spot of the digital transformation.
