Taking place from 09:00 to 11:45 CET on Monday 3rd October, in the Grand Auditorium of the Palais des Festivals, TFWA World Conference will open with an address from TFWA President Erik Juul-Mortensen, followed by insightful conversations with some of the world’s leading figures in economics and branding. Participants will hear from David McWilliams, Adjunct Professor of Global Economics at Trinity College Dublin’s School of Business and one of the most authoritative – and entertaining – voices on economics and geopolitics today; and Raymond Cloosterman, Founder and CEO of Rituals, who will address brand-building in a changing world. The Conference will also look at life in the Metaverse with the help of a global expert on new digital technologies: Swan Sit, Operating Partner of AF Ventures, a Leading Voice on Clubhouse and the former Global Head of Digital Marketing for Nike, Revlon, and Estée Lauder.
