Education
Art
Construction
Architecture
Healthcare
Finance
Fashion
Writing & Journalism
Law & Justice
Energy & Infrastructure
Food & Agriculture
Water

Each break-out will be lead by extremely knowledgeable, experienced and in many cases award-winning professionals.

The event takes place on Saturday the 30th of April
