Director @ Smart Flying Machines
Born and raised in South Africa, I moved to Europe in the early '90's and have worked in government roles rising up the ladder to senior management. During the past 10 years, I have been running a series of businesses related to technology and entrepreneurial activation.
Most recently, I've made some investments in various industries such as hospitality, entertainment and the most difficult of all, the defence industry.
I like to write. I like to code cool hardware projects too. I've built robots, dance machines and some interactive physical games among other things.
In recent years, Greece has seen a wave of professionals from information technology fields, who have either chosen Greece to stay and grow professionally (either founding their own company, or working for companies) or returned to Greece after years of living abroad, or choose to not return.
The panel will delve into the multifaceted factors that influence these choices, the challenges they encounter, and the strategies they employ to navigate this unique crossroads in their careers.
