Rudy de Waele was the opening keynote speaker for our first IT Masters CON Monterrey, which gathered a crowd of 250+ attendees from the most important companies in the north of Mexico. He spoke about conscious business, future technology, and the importance of ethics and personal change looking forward. It was superb! He is a very experienced speaker, with a clear narrative and a kind and warm personality. We were thrilled to have him and is welcome again anytime.

Everybody can talk about the future but not everybody can make sense out of it. Rudy is brilliant at that: he presents the different aspects of disruptive technologies and explains how those will affect business, society and our personal lives. He made a fantastic kick-off to the Leaders’ Congress in Slovenia. Just mesmerizing.
