The Event

Creating Context is a flagship event, the first of a series, scheduled to be held annually. Organized as a learning event, it seeks to provide deeply practical and immediately transformative experience for participants.The main objective for the event is to bring together highly experienced persons with success from their different fields, to interact with and offer lessons practical to individuals in need of context, guidance and support. This, it is believed, will provide solutions for the problem of the wealth of business ideas around versus the insufficiency of fertile spaces to give life to and nurture these ideas, which in turn will significantly reduce the resulting consequences, including migration of skilled labor to ‘greener pastures’ and unemployment.
