We are inspired by ISE’s mission to ‘help the world get back to business’ and look forward to supporting them at this event and moving forward.”
Your lead host at ISE Digital will be Anouk Vleugels, Publisher at The Next Web and a self-proclaimed Digital Centaur Evangelist.

They will present sessions from the Main Stage at the Fira and from a specially created virtual studio.
Our headliners are world-class strategists who will set the tone for the programme, designed to provide attendees with the tools to create a strategic roadmap for success:

Tom will be highlighting the fact that sustainability is at the top of the global agenda and modern society is increasingly concerned with sustainability initiatives; ignoring it can only result in being left behind. Takeaways from this session will include advice on what is the perfect destination for a sustainable business.
