Lecture time




Kelly Hungerfold is a digital strategist and marketing technology advisor who assists European companies with their digital transformation. She has worked with more than 500 companies and has more than 20 years of experience in marketing and communications, software technology, company and brand management, product development/marketing and client management. She says that she is a generalist whose success in developing comprehensive solutions is ensured by her broad knowledge and insatiable curiosity in people, processes and platforms.

Kelly emphasises the key role of the community and unconditional focus on clients as ingredients to success. And that is what all of her projects have in common: connecting. She is the founder and owner of CommunityWorks which brings together experts from across Europe who help companies develop permanent relationships with their final users and build online user communities. As an experienced advisor and strategist, she spends her Saturdays giving advice through #DropinDigital in exchange for coffee and a croissant.

But Kelly does not only believe in the power of connecting in business. In 2015 she co-founded the non-profit association Women in Digital that brings together more than 4,000 women (and men) in Switzerland. The idea behind the association is to connect and recognise talented women in the workforce throughout the country.
