Today we live in an ever-changing World where the speed of change is accelerating, it’s important we support one another and adapt in how we manage our businesses into the future.

At the 46th ESMA Convention, we have assembled a hugely impressive group of speakers who will cover areas of significant value from, AI Strategy for Sales and Marketing, focuses on the consumers adoption of technology, the impact of the networked digital society, all of this with a very strong focus on customer centricity in our businesses.
