You are Invited to Our Events for Insights on Innovation


At Betty Blocks, we’re hosting and participating in a handful of events to offer knowledge and resources about no-code, citizen development and digital transformation to our community (and beyond!). We want to connect with all innovation seekers and digital transformation drivers, so if that’s you, have a look at the following events and join us for tips on your organization’s innovation. Please note that two of the events are held in Dutch only, but we’d like to share all the great things we’re working on!

Gemeente Seminar (Dutch): For municipalities seeking to digitally transform, this is an event for your IT professionals. The municipality of Zaanstad will share their story on how they are renewing their IT landscape with Betty Blocks no-code platform. Starting with an application to manage youth health care in their region, the municipality then created multiple applications to operate a range of processes within the organization. Along with the customer case, our CEO Chris Obdam will give a presentation on the developments in the municipality IT market. This event was in such high demand, it is sold out.

From Strategy to Operation (Dutch): The Strategy Behind Strategy Implementation and What the Animal Kingdom Can Tell Us About Human Connections

Do you have a strategy and want to know how to implement it? On the 18th of October, we’re hosting a book presentation. As achieving innovation requires more than the technology, we provide the platform to turn your ideas into actions as well as the opportunities to learn about all factors leading to innovation. We invite two guest speakers to share their insights on topics to help you innovate from within.

Our first speaker is Ton Nijenhuis, a former CEO of bank and insurance companies. He’s authored “From Strategy to Operation,” a book about implementing business strategy. As one of the early customers of Betty Blocks, Nijenhuis will explain how he implemented strategy with the no-code platform. He will provide answers to the frequently asked questions that all customers have.

Following the book presentation, we introduce Zoologist Eric de Blok. You may be wondering what the connection here is. Without an understanding of people, your organization cannot properly innovate and that includes implementing a new strategy. De Blok will explain what nature has to say about strategy and behavior. He’ll answer the questions, “How do animals work together, and what can humans learn from them?” Sign up and learn more about this event here.
