Introducing The History-Making Speakers of 2024
"Put down your phone, grab a chair and get ready to listen to some of the most fascinating, innovating and jaw-dropping speakers in Europe today. What they say is so special, we’re plunging our other stages into downtime to allow you an easy way to say ‘yes’ to the stars of our show, and get those key takeaways you’ve been looking for.
It’s never an easy decision to focus on just one individual or topic in a whole show full of insightful voices, but our keynote speakers this year have been picked by our content team as industry champions. They are here to not only reveal stories and anecdotes that are exclusive to our show, but to leave you with thought-provoking scenarios that could ultimately change the way you do business.
So do them the favour of being open, be ready to learn and be ready to engage. Because this isn’t just their moment, it’s potentially yours too. Get ready, our keynotes have arrived."

François Hollande was the President of the French Republic from May 2012 to May 2017. During his mandate, he carried out important reforms which restored the competitiveness and the growth of the French economy. He faced with authority the terrorist attacks that afflicted the country in 2015 and 2016. François took important decisions on behalf of France, in particular the engagement of the Army in Mali in order to fight against terrorist groups located in the Sahel. It is under his presidency that the global climate agreement was adopted in Paris in December 2015.
Today, President Hollande chairs the Foundation “France is committed” whose mission is to support all initiatives that contribute to reinforcing solidarity and creating bonds between citizens.
Since his departure from the Elysée, François Hollande has written several books, amongst them The lessons of power in which he describes the high points, and the low points of his presidency, and The democratic crisis, where he suggests major modifications to the constitution of the fifth Republic.
