“The pace of change is too fast nowadays”, said Leonardo Oliveira, Global Media Manager at Vodafone, in his 99-second talk at the 99//Club Digital Festival last month. He highlighted that especially in digital there are always new technologies emerging, pushing this industry forward at an even faster pace than others.
