Yesterday, I spent the whole day at the Swiss Innovation Forum 2021 in Basel, Switzerland. A truly inspiring event. It was a privilege to meet so many extraordinary individuals who had created or worked on incredible innovative ideas. Including the winners, Tom Edwardson and the team of Procavea, who aim to revolutionise the delivery of RNA therapeutics and small molecule drugs.
There were many great speeches and discussions. But, I have to admit, the two that stood out the most were Yves Behar’s inspiring speech on creativity, whom I wish I could have met afterwards and Anousheh Ansari, the first Persian female astronaut and founder of XPrize. In short, you couldn’t meet a more extraordinary lady that is truly down to earth and genuine; what a delight and inspiration to see such a great example of female leadership.
I LOVED her slide, “Future is what we imagine it to be!”
If you can dream it and believe it, you can achieve it.
Demand a Better Future,
