“Before I started this EMBA, I thought I had a good understanding of the potential of digitalisation – but it turns out I had a lot to learn. Even though I’m a doctor by training, I’m more commercially oriented and I stopped practicing medicine to create my own start-up tech company. This was almost five years ago and the product we created is now being implemented in Danish hospitals. Later, I was invited to work for the digital health company that invested in my start-up. Fast forward to 2020, I recently took a new position at Novo Nordisk, which is an acknowledged leader in health innovation. It operates in a highly complex industry and I lead the commercial side of two new digital solutions.

Meanwhile, digitally native businesses dominate the Fortune 100. Digital isn’t the future. It’s the here and now.
