Maartje speaks about Communities (why are they important to you as a professional and how can you easily use communities to remain relevant as individuals, professionals and companies?), Digital Technology (travel through the world of digital technology in a time frame of two hours and learn which trends and developments in the past, present and in the future are interesting for running your business) and about Diversity in the creative industry (how do we stand for facts and figures? What are examples of diverse and inclusive campaigns and initiatives?).
