The theme, in short, implies ‘Reset the way you think’ much like the very basic function of the 3 keys when activated on a computer when used to bring up a task manager seeing your running processes. We would like to have our speakers coming in from various fields of media, politics, innovation and creativity, the food industry, business, finance and other, come and give their take on Ctrl + Alt + Del in order to share new ideas and their own perspectives on the translation of this incredibly novel theme. The essence of the topic refers to evaluating current systems, terminating unnecessary programs and restarting one’s life and we believe this will bring a plethora of nouveau age concepts and thinking to the table, something that will surely inspire both our young and experienced audience.
