Nostradamus is a must for CEO’s of big companies and business owners in Flemish Brabant and Brussels. A visionary keynote - a Nostradamus - offers you interesting insights into global business trends, where you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss with fellow business leaders.
This year presented us with many challenges that forced us to use technology in a different way. Social robots are used in care centers, drones provide us with relevant images, 3D-printers work fast to deliver mouth masks and employees use programs like Zoom or Microsoft Teams daily. Robotics are a part of everyday life, now more than ever. But what does human robot interaction mean for entrepreneurship? How do you approach these matters as a CEO? Moreover, what will our future bring? Our guest speaker Prof. dr. ir. Bram Vanderborght shares his insights with us.
