"Change has never been more present in my life than right now. With all the ongoing challenges around the globe, I'm glad that I spent these three days at ESMT Berlin to deep dive into this topic. A diverse group of people from different cultures and nationalities sharing insights about their perspectives is definitely an eye-opening moment.

And you know, if there's one constant in life - it's definitely change."
