The we.CONECT advocates

We would like to thank the people who we are fortunate to have as our advocates: Some of the main influencers, professionals and thought leaders in their field of expertise supported us and never stopped believing in the power of the community we strive to create and grow.

These change agents and communicators accelerated our events' atmosphere with their individual spirit and energy, coupled with profound content sharing, insights and best practice stories. They are the friends and family of the Enterprise Social Network event series. Here they are:

  • Martin Luther King Jr.

Books, Music / Podcasts and my iPad mini (which may contain the aforementioned elements) and my family if it’s not a business related trip.
