About This Event

The theme, “Imagine that…!” will look at life and business in a technology-driven future.

Mr. Vint Cerf will present his insights to the audience and share his vision for a full connected planet. Furthermore, he will provide guidance on what is required for Trinidad and Tobago to be in a position to engage in the opportunities that lay ahead.

Vint Cerf is considered the co-founder of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the internet, along with Robert Kahn. He has served in executive positions at ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), the Internet Society, MCI Inc., the Corporation for National Research Initiatives and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. Among the many awards he has received is the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States’ highest award to civilians, which was bestowed in 1997. Vint is an internationally renowned speaker on trends in digitisation and how lives and businesses can be affected by imagination and technology.

Charles Pashley, President of the Chamber notes, “We are honoured to have this prestigious guest speaker join us at our first Signature Event for the year. The world of imagination was once viewed as being incompatible with business, but people like Vint have been exploding that myth in his global engagements.  In fact, technology is driving a new wave of imaginative innovators in every sector.  We too can free our minds to the possibilities that technology offers to businesses. It is time to re-imagine our tomorrow and re-shape our future. We at the Chamber believe that this conference, ‘Imagine that…!’ is about giving you that tool.”

Immediately following this segment, the Chamber will open the panel discussion portion of the event where we have assembled a group of technology leaders from some of the world’s most respected companies.
