The Business Insider Global Trends Festival conference will take place online from 19th to 23rd of October 2020, and its main theme will be the impact of Covid-19 along five main themes: Welcome to the Future, Shifting Societies, Sustainability, Technology and Organization.
The ongoing pandemic has already transformed our lives, but its overall impact on the ways we conduct business is yet to be fully appreciated. How strongly will the crisis hit the economy on a longer-term basis? How should we adapt to the forthcoming changes? How can one find their own way to success in changing times?
The conference will feature speakers from academia, such as Nouriel Roubini, Professor of Economics at Stern School of Business; to business, such as Michael Miebach, President and CEO-Elect of Mastercard. In one Africa-focused fireside chat, Leonard Stiegeler, founder of Pulse, the licensee publisher of Business Insider Africa, will interview Iyin Aboyeji, the serial founder and entrepreneur behind African success stories Andela, Flutterwave and Future Africa.
