Helping tech companies become better communicators and making them stand out from the competition - that's how Tanja Schürmann would describe one of her main tasks. Her job description also includes keywords like digital transformation, big data analytics, 3D printing, or making security a more tangible issue, as well as creating fascinating stories about these (and other) topics.
