CANSO Global Leadership Summit 2021
CANSO’s first global gathering of 2021 featured inspirational speakers and renowned experts from outside the ATM industry to explore what the world could look like in the years ahead.
One of the world’s top futurists, Gerd Leonhard, shared his view of what to expect in the next 3-5 years, and took us on a journey across key trends like the future of work, business travel and trade, and the geopolitical impact of the current crisis.
Following Gerd, Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde explored the social role of design, the importance of “Schoonheid” (a Dutch word meaning both beauty and cleanliness) and his vision for the future.
Day two saw Isabelle Mauro, Director, Head Digital Communications Industry at the World Economic Forum, talk about digital inclusion and why it’s essential to economic recovery, and then Ian Painter, General Manager, Air Operations, Cirium, delivered a keynote speech in which he took a deep-dive into industry data and what it means for ATM.
We also had wide-ranging conversations with our own industry leaders about how we can be stronger, fitter, and more resilient to the challenges that lie ahead.
This virtual summit allowed more than 300 people from across Air Traffic Management and beyond to connect with each other again and start talking about the exciting future that still awaits our industry, despite the challenges of the past year.
