Our network of 300 speakers and their amazing ideas have helped transform the landscape of our city over the past 6 years and enabled us to realize this mission. Our latest cohort of 19 speakers have set out with a vision of building a more resilient world and we are fortunate to be a catalyst in giving our city a safe space for its most inspiring ideas. We are happy to have partnered with the leading global reinsurer Swiss Re for this edition since their vision of building a more resilient world resonates closely with ours.”
