Coming soon : CxO Leadership Forum (11th Edition)
Summer Edition – 4 September 2018 – BluePoint Brussel

The New Rules For Business Success In The Digital Age

CxO Leadership Forum Summer 2018





Dear manager,
Dear entrepreneur,

We have the honour to invite chief executives, entrepreneurs, investors and board members on 4 September @ Agoria in Brussels to the 11th edition of the CxO Leadership Forum. This dialogue about “the new rules for business success in the digital age” is all about a 4 months authentic dialogue with an exclusive audience.

The CxO Leadership Forum isn’t a classic management event. It focuses on interaction, peer learning and new sustainable business relationships.  From September 2018 to December 2018 we report in all CxO media on ‘The New Rules For Business Success In The Digital Age’. Via a congress, lectures, testimonials, talk-of-the-town reports and must-see interviews, we manage a interactive conversation between you and the audience. We believe that this is the only way to score the best result.

Let us connect with Captains of Industry! Interaction between peers leads to a sustainable transfer of strategic knowledge.  Only the CxO Leadership Forum offers you a combination of an innovation battle, brainstorm sessions, debates & world cafés.

This year, the central theme is‘The New Rules For Business Success In The Digital Age. This interactive seminar is held in the stunning BluePoint premises (HQ of Agoria) in Brussels on 4 September 2018.

You are the program. At the end of the congress, you and your peers are the winners.

Dirk Vermant, Director CxO Europe
