2021 conference theme: Business resistance amidst crisis

These past months have challenged us in ways many couldn’t have imagined.

Yet, despite the on going challenges, innovative solutions to collaborate, work, communicate or simply do business have disrupted traditional ways on how business was done.

In this time of significant uncertainty, we believe that the business resistance and the way to shape the future of work by creating new models, methods, processes or tools has never been more important. 

IBIS 2021 theme is all about the “business resistance” and how new, emerging but also traditional approaches to tackling business realities can help to build a better society.
