Talsom at C2 : Meetings at the juncture of humans and technology to promote innovation

Digital and human transformations define our era. Every organization is affected – yours as much as ours. These deep, sudden transformations are continuously redefining the keys to success and criteria for survival in the business world. For eight years, Talsom has been evolving to equip you with the very best tools for a successful digital transformation. By completing our own daily transformation, we have acquired valuable skills and insights regarding the collision and synergies between humans and technologies. With this in hand, we are able to harness our talent to ensure your success.

What will the reality be tomorrow and what should it be today?To answer this question, we are joining C2 Montréal as a partner on May 23, 24 and 25, 2018, where we will be present with our entire team.

What is C2 Montréal?

C2 Montréal is an event where the worlds of commerce and creativity collide to explore substantial, upcoming trends, opportunities, disruptions and mutations. Every year, more than 6,500 creators and decision-makers come together to shape, live and reinvent the future of business. As every member of our team will attend, the sum of our parts will help drive innovation within our organization and ultimately within yours.

 

Our Initiatives

In addition to allowing each of our employees to grow their knowledge and develop new ideas through the different activities proposed by C2 Montréal, we will also launch several initiatives to gather today’s visionaries and to promote the revolutions of tomorrow.

For this year’s event, our talents have identified three “Transformative Collisions” that Talsom will discuss at its booth, which is located at the Arsenal art gallery in Montréal:

#1 Collision between Digital Code and Social Code. On May 23, with our partner TECHNOPOLYS, the movement to promote Quebec’s technology industry, we will discuss the training, recruitment and recognition of female talent in the field of information technology.

#2 Collision between New Technologies and Traditional Industries. On May 24, with our partner ADRENALYS, we invite you to learn how a traditional industry such as agriculture can reinvent itself and prosper with the help of digital technologies.

#3 Collision between Failure and Transformation. On May 25, our partners at CEFRIOwill immerse us in a conversation at their Change Lab to identify the perfect conditions for failure with digital transformation, in order to reveal the keys to success for our Quebec-based SMEs.

For several months, Talsom has also been fascinated about another collision: that among the business sector, technology and non-governmental organizations that work to develop international assistance to create a positive impact in communities that need it the most. In May, Talsom will officially announce its collaboration with the KANPE Foundation and the Humanos Institute for their pilot project for international development in Haiti. Through this collaboration, we will work and develop sustainable solutions in Haiti and to resolve the situation identified by Dr. Niels Billou, who is a Design Thinking Expert at Talsom and Founder of the Humanos Institute:

 

On their return from an exploratory mission on the ground, Dr. Niels Billou, Olivier Laquinte (President of Talsom) and Isabelle Thibault (Executive Director of KANPE) will lead discussions on this subject in the company of distinguished guests such as the co-founders of KANPE and of Impak Finance. During C2 Montréal and in the context of this project, Talsom will also support the “Design Thinking for Humanity” organized by the Humanos Institute and given by Dr. Niels Billou.

If you are able to attend C2 Montréal this year, do not hesitate to visit our booth to experience transformative collisions with us. Write to us and join us for a breakfast or a drink served by the KINOVA robotic arm during our daily 5 à 7 cocktail parties. And for those who wish to participate remotely, we will post the full discussions and content concerning these collisions in real time via live YouTube links. You will also be able to view these discussions again at any time after the event.

If you wish to learn more about our activities during C2 Montréal, our collisions, and our guests, stay tuned!
