Frequently Asked Questions


About the programme

50 years of business – Just as businesses of 50 years ago would have been unprepared for the business world today, what lies ahead for business in the next 50 years? Forward thinking business leaders and world-class academics think ahead using all of their knowledge and experience in an interactive event that also offers ample opportunities for networking.
There is enough space for everyone to take part in a session, but some sessions will be more popular than others, and space in these might become limited. We recommend you study the full programme and session descriptions before you come so you know which sessions you want to attend.
If you would like to present a breakout session based on this year’s theme ‘50 years of business’ please contact us with your proposal. Email summit@rsm.nl
We are working on an event app (and our website is easy to navigate on smartphones). More info about this app will be published soon.
We’ll be gathering biographies of all our speakers on the website as they are confirmed, just click on the photos or 'read more'.
