This year, we're delighted to bring our flagship conference to Dubai for the second time.
How can we be braver? In today’s ever-changing world, winners take the risk or lose the chance. We believe overcoming our own barriers starts with learning from inspirational speakers who have pushed themselves to the limits and thrived.
We're curating a programme of brave speakers that will challenge the way you think and inspire you to be a bolder, braver leader.
