Journey into The Next Decade

Enormous technological and cultural shifts have impacted the way we live, work and play in the last decade. With constant change continuing to disrupt our world comes the need to adapt and innovate—not only whole industries and jobs but also ourselves as individuals. In this all-day learning conference, we'll embark into the future: the next ten years of technology, business and social transformation, and explore how lifelong personal growth and curiosity is imperative for thriving in the decade of unprecedented change ahead.

A Day of Dynamic Discussions

For the past year, Fastfwd Festival by NewCampus has been connecting curious and forward-thinking individuals with likeminded peers. Forge new networks with a day of mixed-format sessions: inspiring keynotes with industry hard-hitters; deep-dive breakouts with passionate leaders; and intimate roundtables with experienced mentors.
