October 24-25, the two-day HR Tech World 2017 conference took place in the RAI Amsterdam. At the end of day 1, the audience was awaiting a big revelation, namely the unveiling of the new conference name: UNLEASH. The UNLEASH shows draw the world’s most influential visionaries, including the likes of Sir Richard Branson. In Amsterdam, Arianna Huffington, who was named by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most powerful and influential women in the world and is also known as founder of the Huffington Post, was the keynote speaker. A central topic was the impact of rapid technological advances on our industries, jobs and processes.
