www.ciobusinessworld.com
You know a clever person, if he has all the answers.
But it is a wise person that asks the right questions.
Driving the team at MyDigiSelf, DAN BOG is one such
wise leader who has poised the HR industry. With a rich
background in navigating the digital environment, Dan
brings a unique perspective to the world of information
democracy and digital human rights. Dan Bog is not just an
entrepreneur; he's a digital visionary shaping the future of
information democracy and digital empowerment.
Let's delve into the transformative story of Dan.
Odyssey in Digital HR and AI Control
In the intricate tapestry of his entrepreneurial journey, Dan
Bog mirrors the evolution of his soul—an informational
essence projected into the manifested universe. Through the
trials and triumphs of various projects and startups, both
realized and unfinished, he embarked on a path that led to
the inception of MyDigiSelf, a concept poised to
revolutionize the digital HR landscape and redefine AI
control.
The genesis of this startup dates back to 2022, following an
extensive analysis of banking and digital-societal
14
environments. The seed of the idea took root in Hong Kong
in 2018, envisioning an HR startup within the banking
industry.
Dan's challenge echoes the collective struggle of those
navigating the Information and AI era. It calls for a
profound understanding of the informational self—an entity
as significant as the physical body, destined for expression
and rebirth in the digital realm.
Through his unique perspective and unwavering
commitment, Dan Bog continues to shape the narrative of
the digital revolution, steering MyDigiSelf towards a future
where the essence of individuals takes center stage in the
evolving landscape of information and artificial
intelligence.
In the contemporary landscape of social networks, there
exists a pervasive issue where companies exploit users'
digital identities without explicit consent, resulting in
privacy violations and a lack of control over personal data.
The use of Big Data, predominantly generated through
social media apps, for profit and societal influence has
raised concerns about user autonomy and digital privacy.
Traditional platforms, driven by profit motives, often
prioritize financial gains over safeguarding digital rights,
creating a disparity between their substantial profits and
users' earnings. This phenomenon not only compromises
informational and decision-making democracy but also
underscores the urgency of addressing the exploitation and
lack of control over our digital lives.
Empowering Digital Ownership in the HR Landscape
Enter MyDigiSelf.com, a groundbreaking initiative from
FedEUR Startup, designed to tackle these pressing issues.
MyDigiSelf.com proposes a Digital sovereign HR social
network where every individual becomes the rightful owner
of their DigiSelf, co-owning the entirety of their data,
information, and software. The platform introduces a
revolutionary solution by empowering individuals to be
genuine owners and beneficiaries of their digital identities.
Operating as a decentralized HR Social Network,
MyDigiSelf.com offers its members a company-share on
the blockchain—an NFT share-token representing their
incorruptible Digital Body generated by MyDigiSelf. This
unique approach challenges the conventional norms,
establishing Digital Human Rights and enabling users to

benefit from the BigData economy derived from the
collective value of their "DigiSelf." This collective value
holds the potential to evolve into a multipotential
cryptocurrency, intricately linked to the Global Human
Resources' value.
FedEur plc, through MyDigiSelf.com, presents a
transformative solution, fostering a secure, fair, and
sustainable digital environment for data and software
ownership. The platform allows individuals within the
MyDigiSelf Social Network to assert ownership of their
digital selves, receiving a company share-token that
symbolizes their digital sovereignty in the informational
era. Together, the members form a cohesive entity within
the realm of BigData, shaping and contributing to its
evolving economy.
A Paradigm Shift in Work, Collaboration, and Future of
HR
In his philosophy, Dan believes that work undertaken
merely out of obligation or stringent necessity stifles
creativity and inhibits the true expression of an individual's
nature. He asserts that he has never perceived his endeavors
as work but rather as a manifestation of his passion for
addressing challenges and providing innovative solutions.
Following his academic journey, Dan embarked on what he
describes as a delightful and perpetual vacation, where he
generously contributes his skills and resources to others
while also embracing the reciprocal exchange of knowledge
and support.
Embracing the revolutionary mission of FedEUR Startup,
Dan made a conscious decision not to offer conventional
job positions and salaries that might attract individuals
solely driven by necessity. Instead, the mission's goals and
needs were communicated through the NGO Europolis, a
platform dedicated to championing the fundamentals of
Digital Human Rights in Geneva. This strategic approach
allowed the law of universal attraction to naturally bring
together a team of specialists whose spiritual and cognitive
alignment complements the informational and functional
design of MyDigiSelf.com, akin to assembling the missing
parts of a uniquely Swiss watch.
Dan firmly believes in fostering a culture where every team
member becomes a partner and associate in the collective
achievements. The quality of teams formed through this
approach is perceived by Dan as divine, leading to a natural
evolution where team members organically transition into
partners and associates. This collaborative ethos is not only
evident in FedEUR but also serves as a blueprint for the
envisioned new world, which Dan aims to promote through
the bold decentralized paradigm of Sovereign Human
Resources in the digital realm.
Pioneering a Digital Meta-Universe through MyDigiSelf
Dan sees himself as a perpetual player in the quest for
solutions. His unwavering mission involves continually
addressing systemic needs in information spaces, a core
focus of his investments. Envisioning MyDigiSelf within
FedEUR as a digital meta-universe, Dan foresees a
collective BigData economy where individuals, armed with
digital identities, become coordinators and beneficiaries of
AI applications, shaping the fabric of our world and society.
Vision for a Decentralized HR Social Network
In the forthcoming digital era, the principle of freedom and
decentralization in information is non-negotiable,
irrespective of the associated costs. The question arises:
who would willingly allow their data and expressions,
generated across digital platforms, to be commodified for
the exclusive benefit of corporations?
Recognizing the fundamental right to self-image, a
cornerstone of democracies, raises paradoxical concerns
16
where this right is not upheld. The aspiration to earn from
one's contribution to the social networking industry, an
industry reliant on user presence as its sole raw material,
reflects fundamental yet overlooked values. These values,
central to Europolis NGO and our Startup spinoff, serve as
an enduring motivation.
FedEUR stands as the pioneer in decentralized HR social
networking, uniting members as associates and
beneficiaries in the digital realm, proposing shares as
monetary values aligned with our global HR worth.
Emergence of a Decentralized Digital Era
The imminent revolution in human resources, driven by
information decentralization and artificial intelligence,
foresees the dissolution of traditional employer-employee
relations. Instead, space will be created for collaborative
team functionality, where human resources actively
contribute to product creation, reclaiming the added value.
This shift challenges the dominance of corporations through
stock exchange markets.
In decentralized digital HR networks, each member
possesses their unique DigiSelf (NFT), its value self-
regulated through the tokenized HR market. The FedEur
startup, with its MyDigiSelf HR platform, emerges as a
comprehensive solution for establishing a self-regulated
independent HR meta-universe, vital for navigating the
inevitable collapse of centralized information economies
and conventional stock exchange markets.
Vision for the First Digital HR Exchange
Dan pioneers the first Human Resources Exchange Market,
valuing each profile with NFTs in the digital currency
market. This innovative concept reshapes traditional HR
dynamics, emphasizing individual digital representations.
His vision heralds a new era in human resources,
introducing a paradigm shift in profile valuation and
exchange. The Human Resources Exchange Market
redefines professional profile assessment and trade in a
revolutionary way.
A Call to Entrepreneurs by Dan
Dan's advice for budding entrepreneurs is clear: first, create
a MyDigiSelf account to harness the autonomy of their
digital identity and capitalize on it in the digital realm,
mirroring the approach in the physical world. Second, he
urges them to establish their sovereign digital HR network
through the MyDigiSelf.com platform, tailored for HR
entrepreneurs surviving in a landscape dominated by
LinkedIn. The incentive is significant, as each new
associate brought into the FedEUR digital realm earns them
valuable F€ shares. In essence, Dan emphasizes the urgency
to join this transformative journey—ideally yesterday, but
certainly not later than today.

Human Resources (HR) leaders are playing an
increasingly pivotal role in steering corporate
success in the dynamic landscape of the business
world. In this article, we will explore the key trends and
strategies HR leaders are employing to drive organizational
growth, foster a thriving workplace culture, and navigate
the challenges of an evolving corporate environment.
1. Employee Experience and Wellbeing
Modern HR leaders recognize the critical importance of
prioritizing employee experience and wellbeing. With a
focus on creating positive workplace cultures, HR
professionals are championing initiatives related to mental
health, work-life balance, and employee engagement.
Flexible work arrangements, wellness programs, and
fostering a sense of belonging are central to enhancing the
overall employee experience.
2. Digital HR Transformation
The digitization of HR processes is a defining trend, with
HR leaders leveraging technology to streamline operations
and enhance efficiency. Automated recruitment processes,
employee self-service platforms, and data analytics for
talent management are becoming integral components of
HR strategies. The shift towards cloud-based HR systems is
enabling real-time data access and insights for informed
decision-making.
3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
HR leaders are driving initiatives to create diverse,
equitable, and inclusive workplaces. Recognizing the
business benefits of diverse perspectives, HR professionals
are implementing inclusive hiring practices, providing
diversity training, and fostering an inclusive corporate
culture. DEI efforts are not only ethical imperatives but also
contribute to innovation and improved organizational
performance.
4. Agile Talent Management
The nature of work is evolving, and HR leaders are
adapting talent management strategies to embrace agility.
This includes promoting continuous learning and
upskilling, encouraging a growth mindset, and facilitating
career development opportunities. HR professionals are at
the forefront of creating agile work environments that
enable employees to thrive in an ever-changing landscape.
5. Remote and Hybrid Work Models
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of
remote work, and HR leaders are navigating the transition
to hybrid work models. Balancing flexibility with the need
for collaboration, HR professionals are redefining policies,
implementing technology solutions for virtual
collaboration, and fostering a sense of connectivity among
remote and on-site teams.
6. Employee Learning and Development
The emphasis on continuous learning is a cornerstone of
HR strategies, with leaders recognizing the importance of
upskilling and reskilling employees. HR professionals are
implementing innovative learning platforms, mentorship
programs, and personalized development plans to nurture
the skills required for the future of work.
7. Data-Driven Decision-Making
HR leaders are leveraging data analytics to make informed
decisions related to talent acquisition, performance
management, and workforce planning. Utilizing people
analytics, HR professionals can identify trends, assess
employee engagement, and proactively address challenges,
contributing to more effective and strategic decision-
making.
Conclusion
In an era of rapid change and unprecedented challenges, HR
leaders are at the forefront of driving corporate
transformation. By embracing digitalization, fostering
inclusive cultures, and prioritizing employee wellbeing, HR
professionals are not only shaping the future of work but
also contributing to the overall success and resilience of
organizations in the corporate world. As HR continues to

  • 14. You know a clever person, if he has all the answers. But it is a wise person that asks the right questions. Driving the team at MyDigiSelf, DAN BOG is one such wise leader who has poised the HR industry. With a rich background in navigating the digital environment, Dan brings a unique perspective to the world of information democracy and digital human rights. Dan Bog is not just an entrepreneur; he's a digital visionary shaping the future of information democracy and digital empowerment. Let's delve into the transformative story of Dan. Odyssey in Digital HR and AI Control In the intricate tapestry of his entrepreneurial journey, Dan Bog mirrors the evolution of his soul—an informational essence projected into the manifested universe. Through the trials and triumphs of various projects and startups, both realized and unfinished, he embarked on a path that led to the inception of MyDigiSelf, a concept poised to revolutionize the digital HR landscape and redefine AI control. The genesis of this startup dates back to 2022, following an extensive analysis of banking and digital-societal 14
  • 15. environments. The seed of the idea took root in Hong Kong in 2018, envisioning an HR startup within the banking industry. Dan's challenge echoes the collective struggle of those navigating the Information and AI era. It calls for a profound understanding of the informational self—an entity as significant as the physical body, destined for expression and rebirth in the digital realm. Through his unique perspective and unwavering commitment, Dan Bog continues to shape the narrative of the digital revolution, steering MyDigiSelf towards a future where the essence of individuals takes center stage in the evolving landscape of information and artificial intelligence. In the contemporary landscape of social networks, there exists a pervasive issue where companies exploit users' digital identities without explicit consent, resulting in privacy violations and a lack of control over personal data. The use of Big Data, predominantly generated through social media apps, for profit and societal influence has raised concerns about user autonomy and digital privacy. Traditional platforms, driven by profit motives, often prioritize financial gains over safeguarding digital rights, creating a disparity between their substantial profits and users' earnings. This phenomenon not only compromises informational and decision-making democracy but also underscores the urgency of addressing the exploitation and lack of control over our digital lives. Empowering Digital Ownership in the HR Landscape Enter MyDigiSelf.com, a groundbreaking initiative from FedEUR Startup, designed to tackle these pressing issues. MyDigiSelf.com proposes a Digital sovereign HR social network where every individual becomes the rightful owner of their DigiSelf, co-owning the entirety of their data, information, and software. The platform introduces a revolutionary solution by empowering individuals to be genuine owners and beneficiaries of their digital identities. Operating as a decentralized HR Social Network, MyDigiSelf.com offers its members a company-share on the blockchain—an NFT share-token representing their incorruptible Digital Body generated by MyDigiSelf. This unique approach challenges the conventional norms, establishing Digital Human Rights and enabling users to 15 www.ciobusinessworld.com Most Influential HR Leaders Leading the Corporate World, 2024
  • 16. benefit from the BigData economy derived from the collective value of their "DigiSelf." This collective value holds the potential to evolve into a multipotential cryptocurrency, intricately linked to the Global Human Resources' value. FedEur plc, through MyDigiSelf.com, presents a transformative solution, fostering a secure, fair, and sustainable digital environment for data and software ownership. The platform allows individuals within the MyDigiSelf Social Network to assert ownership of their digital selves, receiving a company share-token that symbolizes their digital sovereignty in the informational era. Together, the members form a cohesive entity within the realm of BigData, shaping and contributing to its evolving economy. A Paradigm Shift in Work, Collaboration, and Future of HR In his philosophy, Dan believes that work undertaken merely out of obligation or stringent necessity stifles creativity and inhibits the true expression of an individual's nature. He asserts that he has never perceived his endeavors as work but rather as a manifestation of his passion for addressing challenges and providing innovative solutions. Following his academic journey, Dan embarked on what he describes as a delightful and perpetual vacation, where he generously contributes his skills and resources to others while also embracing the reciprocal exchange of knowledge and support. Embracing the revolutionary mission of FedEUR Startup, Dan made a conscious decision not to offer conventional job positions and salaries that might attract individuals solely driven by necessity. Instead, the mission's goals and needs were communicated through the NGO Europolis, a platform dedicated to championing the fundamentals of Digital Human Rights in Geneva. This strategic approach allowed the law of universal attraction to naturally bring together a team of specialists whose spiritual and cognitive alignment complements the informational and functional design of MyDigiSelf.com, akin to assembling the missing parts of a uniquely Swiss watch. Dan firmly believes in fostering a culture where every team member becomes a partner and associate in the collective achievements. The quality of teams formed through this approach is perceived by Dan as divine, leading to a natural evolution where team members organically transition into partners and associates. This collaborative ethos is not only evident in FedEUR but also serves as a blueprint for the envisioned new world, which Dan aims to promote through the bold decentralized paradigm of Sovereign Human Resources in the digital realm. Pioneering a Digital Meta-Universe through MyDigiSelf Dan sees himself as a perpetual player in the quest for solutions. His unwavering mission involves continually addressing systemic needs in information spaces, a core focus of his investments. Envisioning MyDigiSelf within FedEUR as a digital meta-universe, Dan foresees a collective BigData economy where individuals, armed with digital identities, become coordinators and beneficiaries of AI applications, shaping the fabric of our world and society. Vision for a Decentralized HR Social Network In the forthcoming digital era, the principle of freedom and decentralization in information is non-negotiable, irrespective of the associated costs. The question arises: who would willingly allow their data and expressions, generated across digital platforms, to be commodified for the exclusive benefit of corporations? Recognizing the fundamental right to self-image, a cornerstone of democracies, raises paradoxical concerns 16
  • 17. where this right is not upheld. The aspiration to earn from one's contribution to the social networking industry, an industry reliant on user presence as its sole raw material, reflects fundamental yet overlooked values. These values, central to Europolis NGO and our Startup spinoff, serve as an enduring motivation. FedEUR stands as the pioneer in decentralized HR social networking, uniting members as associates and beneficiaries in the digital realm, proposing shares as monetary values aligned with our global HR worth. Emergence of a Decentralized Digital Era The imminent revolution in human resources, driven by information decentralization and artificial intelligence, foresees the dissolution of traditional employer-employee relations. Instead, space will be created for collaborative team functionality, where human resources actively contribute to product creation, reclaiming the added value. This shift challenges the dominance of corporations through stock exchange markets. In decentralized digital HR networks, each member possesses their unique DigiSelf (NFT), its value self- regulated through the tokenized HR market. The FedEur startup, with its MyDigiSelf HR platform, emerges as a comprehensive solution for establishing a self-regulated independent HR meta-universe, vital for navigating the inevitable collapse of centralized information economies and conventional stock exchange markets. Vision for the First Digital HR Exchange Dan pioneers the first Human Resources Exchange Market, valuing each profile with NFTs in the digital currency market. This innovative concept reshapes traditional HR dynamics, emphasizing individual digital representations. His vision heralds a new era in human resources, introducing a paradigm shift in profile valuation and exchange. The Human Resources Exchange Market redefines professional profile assessment and trade in a revolutionary way. A Call to Entrepreneurs by Dan Dan's advice for budding entrepreneurs is clear: first, create a MyDigiSelf account to harness the autonomy of their digital identity and capitalize on it in the digital realm, mirroring the approach in the physical world. Second, he urges them to establish their sovereign digital HR network through the MyDigiSelf.com platform, tailored for HR entrepreneurs surviving in a landscape dominated by LinkedIn. The incentive is significant, as each new associate brought into the FedEUR digital realm earns them valuable F€ shares. In essence, Dan emphasizes the urgency to join this transformative journey—ideally yesterday, but certainly not later than today. 17 www.ciobusinessworld.com Most Influential HR Leaders Leading the Corporate World, 2024

In this article, we will explore the key trends and strategies HR leaders are employing to drive organizational growth, foster a thriving workplace culture, and navigate the challenges of an evolving corporate environment. 1. Employee Experience and Wellbeing Modern HR leaders recognize the critical importance of prioritizing employee experience and wellbeing. With a focus on creating positive workplace cultures, HR professionals are championing initiatives related to mental health, work-life balance, and employee engagement. Flexible work arrangements, wellness programs, and fostering a sense of belonging are central to enhancing the overall employee experience. 2. Digital HR Transformation The digitization of HR processes is a defining trend, with HR leaders leveraging technology to streamline operations and enhance efficiency. Automated recruitment processes, employee self-service platforms, and data analytics for talent management are becoming integral components of HR strategies. The shift towards cloud-based HR systems is enabling real-time data access and insights for informed decision-making. 3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion HR leaders are driving initiatives to create diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces. Recognizing the business benefits of diverse perspectives, HR professionals are implementing inclusive hiring practices, providing diversity training, and fostering an inclusive corporate culture. DEI efforts are not only ethical imperatives but also contribute to innovation and improved organizational performance. 4. Agile Talent Management The nature of work is evolving, and HR leaders are adapting talent management strategies to embrace agility. This includes promoting continuous learning and upskilling, encouraging a growth mindset, and facilitating career development opportunities. HR professionals are at the forefront of creating agile work environments that enable employees to thrive in an ever-changing landscape. 5. Remote and Hybrid Work Models The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of remote work, and HR leaders are navigating the transition to hybrid work models. Balancing flexibility with the need for collaboration, HR professionals are redefining policies, implementing technology solutions for virtual collaboration, and fostering a sense of connectivity among remote and on-site teams. 6. Employee Learning and Development The emphasis on continuous learning is a cornerstone of HR strategies, with leaders recognizing the importance of upskilling and reskilling employees. HR professionals are implementing innovative learning platforms, mentorship programs, and personalized development plans to nurture the skills required for the future of work. 7. Data-Driven Decision-Making HR leaders are leveraging data analytics to make informed decisions related to talent acquisition, performance management, and workforce planning. Utilizing people analytics, HR professionals can identify trends, assess employee engagement, and proactively address challenges, contributing to more effective and strategic decision- making. Conclusion In an era of rapid change and unprecedented challenges, HR leaders are at the forefront of driving corporate transformation. By embracing digitalization, fostering inclusive cultures, and prioritizing employee wellbeing, HR professionals are not only shaping the future of work but also contributing to the overall success and resilience of organizations in the corporate world. As HR continues to evolve, these leaders will play a crucial role in navigating uncertainties and championing initiatives that propel their organizations towards sustainable growth and success. 33 www.ciobusinessworld.com Most Influential HR Leaders Leading the Corporate World, 2024
