"The best conference I have ever been to"

Lysa Clavenna, Head of Innovation, Samsung Europe


“Take an eclectic group of 200 interesting and interested people hand-picked from the worlds of business, culture, academia, policy, technology and media - approximate to the number of countries in the world. Put them together for 100 hours of curated conversation and connection and you have an intelligent knowledge network of new friends, colleagues, and a way of seeing and understanding the world. This is what Names Not Numbers is about ”
