Upcoming Discovery Events

Past Discovery Events



Discovery Events are like a one-day MBA. It’s a great opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and learn about subjects you don’t necessarily work with. It’s also a chance to meet and network with people from very different backgrounds.

I picked up a lot of things that I want to try and apply in my job. Sometimes you go to events and it’s so B-to-C that you really shut off and don’t try to see how you can adapt it in your company. But here, even if the examples tend to be more B-to-C, it has been lifted to a level that is I think relevant for all.
