Special Speakers

Lando Simonetti

La Martina Founder From the very beginning, the vision was to create a brand with an international appeal, rooted to the sport of Polo and founded on the common values of elegance,luxury and expertise. Lando Simonetti and the La Martina Team will take you through the Brand essence in order to build a strong path for a winning business development.

Simone Moro

The only alpinist to have reached four 8000 metre peaks during the winter season. He has learnt that motivation, effort and passion are the key values to success both in life and in sports. Everest is not simply a peak to reach while walking from base camp to the top, it is rather about the experience, the challenges and the lessons. What do entrepreneurs and an alpinist have in common? As the route to the summit sometimes can change and turning back is a virtue and not a weakness; in business you have to be ready to embrace change and come up with a new winning strategy.
