When we came up with an idea to organize this type of conference two years ago, many people were surprised. They were used to our commitment to high quality but so far we have been always concentrated on technical topics only. Why this shift?

However a need to share the inspiration with broader cycle of managers came together with our maturity, experiences with foreign markets and touch with various cultures. We believe that Slovakia deserves to have a conference, where personalities of world format can meet, enrich each other and gain new incentives and ideas.

We believe that in the same way as we traveled for knowledge to conferences abroad, it is the right time to get this knowledge at home in "live-broadcasting". It can be said that we only give back to Slovakia what has been given to us in 20 years. We believe that only education, refinement and power of new ideas can help us to move forward. And we believe that we bring some of that at Big Ideas for CEE conference.

"If you only go to one conference in 2015, make it Big Ideas for CEE. They attract top quality speakers from around the world, and combine business expertise with famous sportsmen, musicians and people from arts backgrounds, to great effect. It is exciting to be in a growth market that really expands your perspective, and gives you take-aways that are both practical and conceptual."
