Dear DigitalFuture Summit Community,

We are happy to introduce to you the team of the DigitalFuture Summit 2019, which comprises 30 highly motivated ESMT Berlin Master’s in Management (MiM) students. The DigitalFuture Summit is entirely organized by students of ESMT Berlin, investing great amounts of their time to create this unique event for you.

The DigitalFuture Summit is special, since it kicked-off a series of annual conferences centred around the future digitalization with the goal to be the matchmaker between outstanding students and today`s business world organizations.

We are all very much looking forward to meeting you at the 3rd DigitalFuture Summit on June 20th & 21st, 2019, taking place on ESMT Berlin’s campus in Berlin.

With kindest regards,

Patrick Schiebel & Sarah Ziegler

Strategy and Communication

Sarah (Team Lead), Tommaso, Christoph, Veronica, Maria Eliani, Felix, Gianna, Madleine and Diana jointly run the work-stream for Strategy and Communication.

“Not again one of those conventional conferences, where you just listen to endlessly long presentations”- to avoid exactly this thought, the team is dedicated to design and shape the topic and schedule of DigitalFuture Summit 2019 to provide you with a unique learning experience and information exchange.

Event and Participants Management

Sally (Team Lead), Raluca, Carolina, Srini, Giz, Andrea, Rudorwashe, Alberto and Riccardo jointly run the work-stream for Event Management.

What would a summit be without an outstanding organization? The team coordinates all venue related topics to ensure a smooth DigitalFuture Summit 2019.

Partner Management

Andrea (Co-Team Lead), Alice (Co-Team Lead), Maxim, Edoardo, David, Tzu-Husuan, Azra and Francesca jointly run the work-stream for Sponsors and Corporate Relations.

You can have the most exciting concept, but without speakers, workshop partners or sponsors you won’t be able to realize a fantastic conference. The team is responsible to support the realization of DigitalFuture Summit 2019 by establishing and managing partner accounts, helping to connect you with people active in the field of digitalization.

Finance and Legal

Tobi (Team Lead), Omar and Udayaraj jointly run the work-stream for Finance and Legal.

Last, but not least, the team, who does not only manage our budget but, also facilitates legal coordination and communication between the work-streams and with other stakeholders to make DigitalFuture Summit 2019 a success.
