Welcome to the COMBIS Conference

Look for refreshment and welcome at the COMBIS Conference on Thursday at 11:30 a.m. in front of the Olympia plenary hall at the Olympia Hotel,  where the opening of the 13th edition of the COMBIS Conference is scheduled on Thursday at 12:00.

Keynote lecture

The keynote lecture will give a former football referee and one of the most famous people on the planet Pierluigi Collina.

In his lecture named 'How to be successful on the field', Collina will reveal to the audience what it takes to be the best and stay the best in what we do. Openness to changes and improvements Collina considers crucial in business development, along with a healthy dose of self-criticism, because the goal is always the same - being one step ahead and seeing every change as an opportunity.

Since the main theme of the Combis Conference is Going Beyond Ideas, the keynote lecture perfectly rounds up the reflection on the available potentials for realization of the idea. Of course, if we know how to recognize potentials, if we know the game, and are open to learning and adapting to new conditions, which are greatly dictated by technology. Both in football and in business.

Pierluigi Collina has refereed at the highest level including the 2002 World Cup Final and the 1999 Champions League Final. After his retirement Collina led the Italian Serie A referees and then  appointed UEFA Chief Refereeing Officer. Currently he is the Chairman of the FIFA Referees Committee. Collina, widely considered to be the greatest football referee of all time, is known for his inspiring presentations filled with anecdotes and life stories that are full of humor.
