The conference in Lugano “Non c’è più il futuro di una volta” was one of my first international events.
It was a bit particular event, very innovative compared to the usual and classic conferences.
The organizers wanted to modernize a classic HR event taking place in the Canton of Ticino every year.
They wanted to make the conference in Lugano more innovative and they decided to invite right me!
They thought to begin the event with an American style talk show!
The presenters were sat behind a desk with a cup of coffee and interviewed the guests.
An endless number of calls via Skype with the organizers followed one another to prepare this event at its best and in detail.
After have all planned, finally the big day arrives!
What was the title chosen for the event? “Non c’è più il futuro di una volta”. Does it sound strange to you, too?
In fact, the title was studied to be able to modernize the thinking of people who still work in the HR (Human Resources) branch like they did for many years.
The event hosted a part dedicated to technologies, form the most ancient ones until the actual ones.
There were really many technological objects which marked the history exposed in a sort of museum: telephones and the oldest computers as far as the new technologies, like 3D printers!
The conference didn’t limit itself only to the exposition of the technological objects, but during the event really many important guests were introduced on the stage!
Many important people joined me on the stage: Paolo Vergnani (Psychologist, teacher, author and actor), Roberto Zecchino (V.P. Human Resources & Organization South Europe of Robert Bosch Italy), Daniela Masseroni (Rhythmic Gymnastics Olympic Champion), Michele Pedrocchi (Global Head of Strategy and Business Development of Roche Diagnostics) and many more!
It’s my turn! After the interviews of the other guests, it was my turn going on the stage together with Davide Proverbio, the organizer.
EIt was really exciting to take the stage with him!
The interview began with the usual opening questions: what do you do? What are your hobbies? What about school? Etcetera…
Then we passed to more particular questions: I was asked how a girl as young as me enjoys the innovation, then the debate kept going on as a chat between friends!
At the beginning of my interview I had the impression the audience wasn’t too much interested…I was wrong!
The public asked me really a lot of questions, even when I went off the stage!
When the interview finished – after a long applause – really many people interested in my activities went around me!
They asked me for info about my Robotics School for their children, friends and even themselves and they congratulated on me for everything I did and I’ll do.
It was an unforgettable and very satisfying experience!
Speaking of which…have you already seen the report of my first conference in English?
