EXECUTIVE

Who is an executive?


An executive is like a superhero who helps guide a company to success. They have the power to make big decisions, shape the company's vision, and lead their team to victory. They wear the cape of leadership and use their superpowers of strategy, communication, and problem-solving to take their organization to new heights. With their strong ability to see the big picture and make plans for the future, executives are essential for driving growth and ensuring the longevity of a company. In short, they are the heroes of the corporate world!

Executive Day 2023

For C-level executives who make strategic decisions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Executive Day is about taking the time to listen, talk and network with other leaders. This is the place to bounce your thoughts and learn about challenges and solutions across different industries.


We believe that interdisciplinarity is a foundation of creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Solutions for your problems can come from the most unexpected place. Thus we are bringing together companies from manufacturing, IT, logistics, farming, banking, etc. It will be Legen...Wait for it...Dary to say at least!
