Can we trust China? A different view on a country in transition
By 2028, China will be the largest economy in the world. How did China become a global leader so fast?Is this thanks to the West or due to a different cultural mindset?
Pascal’s keynote “Can we trust China?” unveils why and how Chinese trust each other and their system; mirroring that China lens with a predominantly different view from the West. Should we seek to benefit from China’s transition, this keynote confronts us head-on with a Chinese lens and nuanced view to discover how China functions within their society and businesses.
China's New Normal: How China sets the standard for innovation
This keynote will elaborate on the trends and strenghts of innovation in China, and how China is taking on the challenge and the West to become an innovation superpower by 2030.
By 2030, China wants to become the world leader in innovation. This leaves Western companies with some 10 years to gear up. Pascal’s keynote “China’s New Normal” gives clear insights into the modern China, and reveals new potentials and superpowers coming from the fast and furious innovators of China. As ever more radical innovation will soon be inspired by China, this eye-opening keynote is a treat to anyone who is concerned with disruption and excited about the opportunity.
The two faces of innovation: insights from Silicon Valley & China
Silicon Valley and China’s tech ecosystem cities (such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shanghai) are the fastest evolving innovation hubs in the world. But inspiration from pioneering startups, corporates and academics from these distant corners of the globe should not be an ‘either, or’ story. Each has its very own background, innovation DNA, culture, methods and strategies. Each has the potential to trigger you in ways you’d never thought possible.
