Secure your digital future


CIAO Event 2019

The world is evolving at the speed of technology and to live, learn and work in the digital age requires both left and right brain thinking. Are you ready to help shape the future? How can we create a safe environment with room for innovation and the freedom to make mistakes?

RightBrains organises the CIAO event yearly together with organisations that support our mission. The theme of this year’s event is “Secure your digital future” and will be hosted by our partner, who will welcome us as their VIP guests. CIAO 2019 will form part of the, Data & Cloud Expo.

CIAO stands for creativity, intuition, agility and an open mind. Join us on 30 October 2019 from 13:00 at Jaarbeurs in Utrecht to learn from and connect with your peers and industry thought leaders and get inspired to open your mind to new ideas and possibilities. Our first keynote speaker will take to the stage at 13:30. At 16:30 the nominees for the Digital Leadership & Diversity Award and the Digital Talent Award will join us on stage, followed by the winner announcement. We’ll close off with drinks and networking.
