Call for Speakers
Main Theme: Renaissance
MTL connect is an event with an international scope which seeks to discuss the issues and challenges related to digital transformation at the social, economic, and environmental level. By digital transformation we mean: “the cultural, organizational and operational change of an organization, sector or ecosystem through the intelligent integration of digital technologies, processes and skills at all levels and functions in a phased manner and strategic.”
In the current context of the pandemic, businesses, governments, civil society, and individuals have faced an unprecedented global crisis. They had to show resilience in the face of adversity. Resilience is the individual’s ability to regain a state of balance after an exceptional event, allowing to bounce back and to make a new start after a trauma.
This period saw the massive acceleration of digital transformation in all sectors to address pressing priorities to create a certain “normalcy” despite confinement and social distancing.
Now, it is imperative for us to move beyond resilience and to transit to a new period, a period of profound transformation that heralds a renewal, a paradigm shift to a prosperous future.
Main Theme: Renaissance
Historically, the Renaissance marks the transition from the Middle Ages to modern times when many upheavals and paradigm shifts, both scientific and social, occurred. Today’s RENAISSANCE can be seen as a time of transition where we let go of the uncertainty and fear of the unknown caused by the pandemic towards a new reimagined normal that learns from the past to be adapted to tomorrow’s challenges. This RENAISSANCE has become necessary. It allows all actors, politicians, leaders of civil society, business leaders who seize the opportunity to stand out and better serve their citizens or gain a competitive advantage, even in a changing and unpredictable environment.
Take Part in Important Conversations
This year, as part of MTL connect 2021, we invite you to participate in the discussions around the following questions: In a world where everything seems to have changed, is it better to RENEW or to REPAIR? RENAISSANCE and RECOGNITION:
- Knowing how to name things to adequately respond to new realities?
- What is the role of the government or rather of the E-government in the face of this upheaval?
- What has been and what will be your response to the challenges?
- How does this allow us to reconsider the relationship between society and the economy, between media and democracy, business models, ways of working, interpersonal communications, inclusion and diversity, etc?
In sum, where are the new possibilities?
