THE SECRET OF SUCCESS
In over 15 years of experience as an Internet company, we have made most of the mistakes one can make.
On this journey we continuously asked ourselves the same question - what makes certain companies so much more successful than others?
Is it leadership, team skills, strategy, or simply being at the right place at the right time?
We have made it our mission to collectively come one step closer to finding the key to the secret of success.
By interacting with experts from around the globe, we enable our community to gain insight into the most important developments and strategies you need to become a digital leader.
This is what WORLDWEBFORUM is about - since 2012.

Digitization has changed the global economy with more speed and force than any other factor to date.
Entire industries have been and continue to be disrupted, with new innovations and concepts emerging daily.
Companies who do not transform themselves will eventually be replaced by younger, more innovative companies who can keep up with the rapid pace of the digital age.
Transformation occurs on different levels. The combination of self, team, organization and leadership transformation forms highly advanced companies.
Therefore, we annually bring together experts from each field to inspire, motivate, and guide you to becoming a top digital player, and getting one step closer to finding the key to the "secret of success".
Each speaker offers a unique point of view and answers the most relevant questions by helping you understand each dimension of transformation.
