IGNITE CONFERENCE 2017

29TH - 30th NOVEMBER 2017

 

OUR VISION - DRAWING A PATH TOWARDS A MORE MEANINGFUL BUSINESS WORLD.

At IGNITE, we question business as the phenomena that is currently known, challenge the status quo, and commit to a more purpose-filled world. With the IGNITE Conference, we strive to inspire students and business people alike by showing that business can be oriented towards a higher purpose and realized according to values which allow companies to embrace their responsibility in society in a more sustainable manner. We are convinced that there is no trade-off between purpose and competitiveness as purpose-driven companies are in fact unique in their leadership style, corporate culture, and positive social impact.

At the IGNITE Conference 2017, we want to engage in a dialogue on purpose-driven business and its implementation. Each of our speakers represents an exemplary business and provide unique insights into their experiences. The goal is to offer the participants and the speakers an inclusive environment where the individuals can ask profound questions, engage in the topics, discover for themselves what personal relations and values they have, and experience how simple it is to have a positive impact by pursuing purpose in business. 

This November, the journey continues and you can unite forces with us to experience, engage in, and shape the future of business and work. Thus, it is our pleasure to invite you to help us create a more meaningful business world by contributing to the IGNITE Movement.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

The 2017 Conference will host successful business and thought leaders who are as diverse as the industries they work in and the countries they come from. Their inputs on the topic of purpose-driven business combined with their impressive personal and practical experiences make each of our speaker's indispensable actors of the IGNITE Movement. The strong relationships built with them throughout the year preceding the conference has enabled us to set the scene for a revolutionizing and inspirational journey. The 2017 IGNITE Conference will represent an essential milestone on this path.
