Sir Richard Branson is our guest at the launch of i-SUP2014 on Monday evening, September 1

i-SUP2014 participants have the opportunity to join this inspiring evening at a reduced rate.

During a two hour event, this famous entrepreneur speaks to us about the challenges he has encountered. Sir Richard Branson has built a global empire in the form of 'the Virgin Group'. He is an innovative player in sectors such as telecommunications, rail transport, air travel, health and fitness, relaxation and many more. Virgin Galactic is the world's first commercial space travel company and is known for providing "the greatest adventure of all". But climate change and sustainable business are also hot topics that get Sir Richard Branson's blood pumping. And that is precisely the issue here: how can Flanders continue to grow, operate and renew in a sustainable manner?

So, why not take this chance to let this exemplary entrepreneur, world traveller and innovator inspire you? Join the discussion live as he enters into dialogue with homegrown entrepreneurial personalities and the world's foremost authority on climate, Rajenda Pachauri.
Sir Richard will be discussing his Galactic project with our fellow countryman and astronaut Frank De Winne. Other debaters on stage are the former Norwegian Minister of Energy Arild Rødland and Ivan Van de Cloot, Chief Economist at Itenary Institute, Belgium.
