Honorary Discussions

This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our well-known Honorary Discussions. In a formal setting, various themes will be introduced by inspiring keynote speakers, followed by round table discussions where students and speakers will be able to ask questions, share their perspectives, and challenge each other. The Honorary Discussions are the perfect opportunity for speakers to learn students’ perspectives of various, relevant issues while sharing their own experiences. For students, the Honorary Discussions are a unique experience to interact with C-level executives in a small group setting. The event will end with a networking drink where you get the chance to further discuss the topics and network with all students and the attending honorary guests.
