Natural BI Summit 2021

Networking & Solution Days

22nd and 23rd April 2021 in Cologne


    The Natural BI Summit 2021 will take place in Cologne from 22nd to 23rd April.

    Owing to the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) and to protect the health of all participants and speakers, we have decided to reschedule the event that was originally planned for April. We apologise for any inconvenience and are looking forward to seeing you in Cologne in April 2021.

    At #NBIS21, everything will revolve around BI topics that are on the minds of financial controllers, financial planners and group accounting specialists. Participants can look forward to two exciting days with keynote speeches from renowned top-class speakers, user talks from well-known companies, and innovative corporate performance management approaches from diverse sectors of industry.

    At this year’s Business Intelligence Forum, the focus will be on the intelligence of teams:

    Collect the right data systematically, recognise relationships and generate new knowledge for your future.

    Support your colleagues in their professional development and in responding flexibly to changes.

    Use the various possibilities for collaborating on topics and sharing knowledge.

    Individual ingenuity is not sufficient for long-term success. Instead, it’s a question of using the intelligence of the many: a team is more than just the sum of its members.


    These are the #NBIS20 Keynote Speakers

    • Prof. Dr. Gunter Dueck

      Innovator & bestselling author

      The mathematician, long-standing IBM innovator and bestselling author (Swarm Stupid) has made a name for himself as the "Wild Duck" (lateral thinker). Professor Dueck concerns himself with such topics as the future of the workplace, management and digitisation. He interferes, challenges and urges people to rethink: there's no such thing as impossible. It is, after all, a question of making the world a little better, one step at a time. And what he calls "swarm stupidity" won't be of much use to us in doing that. Gunter Dueck will explain why we are only so stupid in a collective and how we can escape from this trap.
    • Dr. Jürgen Faisst

      BI expert

      The experienced manager and BI expert is on a mission to enhance reports and dashboards by applying consistent design standards. Dr Faisst is Managing Partner at the Hichert+Faisst IBCS Institute, Managing Director of the IBCS Association and co-author of the 2019 bestseller Solid, outlined, hatched: how visual consistency helps better understand reports, presentations and dashboards. At #NBIS20 he will explain the relevance of consistent report design and show what financial controllers can learn from musicians.
    • Jens Ropers

      Partner CA controller akademie

      The consultant, trainer and partner at CA controller akademie has been promoting the development of modern business management for many years with his training courses, talks and projects. Mr Ropers supports financial controllers, specialists and executive staff in change processes and advises businesses on developing qualification strategies as part of digital transformation. His motto is: "Those who wish to predict the future must shape it." And he will reveal how to do that at the Natural BI Summit in Cologne.
