As an added bonus, our event will take place in early Spring, a fantastic time to explore Paris in bloom!

Our second day will kick off with Ivalua’s Founder and CEO, David Khuat-Duy, as he  champions those who endeavor to discover and create something entirely new–bringing an inspiring spirit of innovation. These innovators are challenging existing perspectives, pushing boundaries, and uncovering remarkable opportunities for progress – ultimately leading us down a path towards positive change.

Later in the day, we’re looking forward to hearing from our closing keynote speaker Hanli Prinsloo, Founder of I AM WATER Ocean Conservation. Hanli is a South African freediving record holder and with an extensive background in social-political documentary filmmaking. She has traveled the world seeking and telling stories of transformation, hope, and inspiration. Her mission is to reconnect people with nature through the innovative I AM WATER ocean workshops in underserved coastal communities. Hanli Prinsloo was also selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. We are eagerly anticipating her keynote presentation and the opportunity to be inspired by her words!
