Digital Academy is a committee composed of nearly 200 renowned experts in digitisation and new technologies.

Digital Academy awarded Przemek Kuśmierek, the president of MIGAM for supporting people with disabilities by enabling them to use banking services by, for example, translating the content of documents into sign language.

Out of a group of over 300 candidates, 15 finalists were selected who have played a leading role in the digitalisation of the Polish economy. Among them, a world-class football player, teachers, representatives of public administration, and the media. See who made it onto the prestigious Digital Shapers 2020 list.

Przemek, and with him everyone at Migam, got a spot on the list of 15 exceptional personalities, honoured for their outstanding contribution to the development of the Polish economy in one of 5 categories: education, digital transformation, investment, innovation, and technology, visionary.

Nearly 300 candidates competed for the title of Digital Shapers this year.


In the service of digitisation


“The aim of the list developed since 2018, is to promote digital competence by paying tribute to the achievements of outstanding personalities. Technological transformation is not a new phenomenon, yet this year it gains particular importance. The COVID-19 pandemic proved to us how important innovative development is for the economy. That is why I firmly believe that both current events and the fostering of exemplary attitudes in society will result in many groundbreaking projects,” says Aleksander Kutela, Chairman of the Board of the Digital Poland Foundation, Vice-President of Ringier Axel Springer Polska.

This year’s finalists, in addition to a memorial statuette and the title of Digital Shapers, will also join the ranks of the Digital Academy, similar to the Oscars, which means that in future editions of the competition, they will appoint their nominees This year, the chairman of the Digital Academy was Marek Rosiński, partner at Baker McKenzie, according to whom Poles are born inventors.

“There are still a lot of people living today who remember the communist times when nothing worked and you had to improvise constantly. We are not afraid of change, experimentation, or failure. Flexibility and creativity run in our blood. Our history proves it – just look at how the map of Poland has changed over the last thousand years. At the same time, we have lost so many wars that we have had to develop a sense of humour. Thanks to this unique and sometimes explosive mixture, so many Poles have achieved success in business, sports, or the arts”, argues Marek Rosiński, partner at the Baker McKenzie law firm.


A chance for promotion


Marek Rosiński believes that thanks to the attitudes displayed by the Digital Shapers laureates, Poland has a chance to become the digital heart of Europe. What are the qualities of an ideal Digital Shaper in his opinion?

“A visionary who is not afraid of failures. A passionate person with a great dose of optimism and full of humour. A team player who has the courage to pick people better than himself to be on his team”, says the Baker McKenzie representative.
