For over a decade, EY’s Future Realised – formerly known as the Malta Attractiveness Event – has brought top international speakers to Malta to discuss key global and local business issues around investment, the economy, sustainability, and technology. With the event completely transformed into a virtual experience taking place over four days, EY is taking the opportunity to bring more international content and make this a truly global forum once again. The line-up of speakers for this year’s event, which takes place from October 19 to 22, includes three former prime ministers – Yves Leterme, of Belgium; Jan Peter Balkenende, of the Netherlands; and Jan Krzysztof Bielecki, of Poland; the latter two having also featured in previous editions. Prime Minister Robert Abela and Opposition Leader Bernard Grech have also confirmed their participation. Other speakers include Gallina Vincelette, World Bank director for the EU; Emily Bayley, project leader, ESG, Future of Investing at World Economic Forum; Valentina Ion, director, Business Strategy, Microsoft; Tom Raftery, futurist, innovation evangelist and global vice president at SAP; and Catherine De Vries from Bocconi University.
