What if we could rethink the way we work?

Innovation happens where business, design, and tech meet. To tackle the big challenges of our time, we need to empower our teams, take more calculated risks, and build sustainable businesses. Innovation Today (itoday) focuses on people; thinkers, best-selling authors, and creators that are having a direct impact on the world right now, and its future.

In a series of keynotes and masterclasses, our world-famous speakers will share real-life stories, case studies and behind-the-scenes perspectives from Silicon Valley, Switzerland and the rest of the world. They will also share their practical tools and methods that are inspiring thousands of innovation leaders and the world’s most innovative companies.

We have a unique opportunity to make a change. And it starts today.
