The Speakers & Their Talks
Get Entrepreneurial and Never Suffer at Work Again by Annis Bedda
We spend a significant part of our lives at work and we spend more time with our colleagues than we do with our loved ones. Work is not a place where we should suffer from a lack of fulfillment and purpose. Whether you work in an organisation or as an independent, adopting and entrepreneurial attitude might be your way out of boredom at the workplace and your passport to happiness at work. During his talk, Anis will walk you through transformative experiences through entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship based on real stories and practices.
After working in Tunisia, Turkey, Spain, and Canada, Anis finally settled down in Brussels, Belgium where he cofounded transforma bxl, a coworking and innovation space hosting a community of entrepreneurs, innovators and changemakers.

Anis was also a member of AIESEC for six years.
