​Conference on ideas for smarter business

Offering directions and providing opportunities for innovation and cooperation among diverse actors on regional markets: this was the main objective of the international conference PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT FOR SMARTER BUSINESS - How to learn and share in Age of Knowledge, Innovation and Creativity held in Belgrade on 9 May 2016.
The conference was organised by Gi Group Serbia in partnership with AmCham and SAM (Serbian Association of Managers) and cofinanced by the CEI through its Cooperation Fund. The event featured a number of prominent international speakers who presented current thoughts on hot trends in businesses today. They also engaged the participants in interactive sessions on how “creative destruction” can lead to positive change.
The keynote speaker was the Swedish economist Dr. Jonas Ridderstråle, author of the bestselling books Funky Business, Karaoke Capitalism and Re-energizing the Corporation. In 2014, the Global Top 30 Management Gurus ranking put him among the top 5 in Europe. His lecture addressed his latest thoughts that will be presented in his upcoming book Fast Forward.
More about the conference that hosted over 100 participants (executives from successful large, medium and small local and international companies, representatives of successful nonprofit hubs and startups, representatives of foreign chambers of commerce from the region) available here.
