Panel 1 | Challenging Preconceptions of Working
17:00  to  18:00

Our ideas about working in 2020 have been disrupted and now we are seeing the value in having flexibility at work. Now that we are no longer able to go to the traditional 9 to 5 office, how is our productivity affected? will we ever want to go back to this way of working?

Cocktail hour Day 1
19:00  to  19:30

The closing part of the event will be a special opportunity for networking with the speakers of the Conference. The closing will start off with a Kahoot! on a couple of questions about the conference, where 5 winners will receive a 5€ Deliveroo code to order ingredients for the creation of a drink for the cocktail hour or a pre-made drink. A video of a bartender from the bar “La Santoría” in Madrid will also be shared, where he will walk you through the making of the drink to enjoy during the cocktail hour. 

During this half an hour, different breakout rooms will be assigned to participants for Q&A with the speakers, as an opportunity to be in closer contact with them and deepen in any of the matters you found particularly interesting during the Conference.
