The Moderators
Natalia Kardash
Publisher, Editor-in-Chief, SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS Magazine, Executive Committee Member of Cyprus International Business Association.
"Significant changes in business processes – dealing with artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, self-driving cars, genomic editing, cognitive computing, the Internet of Things, and big data — are underway. As these technologies move to the mainstream, they promise to change our companies, economies and social structures. Without the right action, an organization might find itself left behind, making catastrophic decisions, or entirely compromised."
Nicoletta Livera
Publisher, Managing Director of Eurokerdos Business Magazine
"It is important to overview all major fields of economic activities and to have one speaker (or round table discussion participant) from each industry. For example: one of the world's leading banks, leading car producer, leading software producer, biggest food producer, best hotel chains, most influential business media, well-known and trusted rating agencies and decision-makers."
