International City Podium 2017

30th May 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The fifth International City Podium is coming up. A vibrant (net)working experience that helps you connect to people and business that match your passion, purpose and potential. 

We’ll turn the WTC The Hague into the World Talent Center for a day and are happy to open up a new network of innovative SME’s and multinationals. The Podium is a great way to exchange ideas with other professionals, dive into a pool of great talent, find new partners or get inspired by Hague leaders in their respective domains:

Jeremy Wigmore has long been involved with cool markets. First in the gaming industry and now with drones, as CEO of Aerialtronics, a company in the forefront of drone technology, providing aerial systems for uses that range from surveillance to movie production.  He is also the new chairman of ICP.




Thierry Bouffioux is a serial innovator, investor at Dubai Angel Investors and a much wanted advisor to big, more traditional organisations (aka ‘the usual suspects’). In an unorthodox way, he links startups and multinationals to the benefit of both. Thierry will be talking about the future of work for talent and employers.




Brian Gharibaan is one of the ‘Jongens van Techniek’, a software development company and co-founder of The Hague Tech, a community that gathers research institutions, government and tech companies in order to streamline solutions to major modern challenges with the use of technology. Brian will be talking about how successful business is built by teams including both hipsters, hackers and hustlers.



Elsine van Os is the founder of Signpost Six, a behavioral threat assessment company that provides (cyber) insider threat management programmes.  Elsine was educated as a clinical psychologist and has a strong background in military and commercial intelligence. She also has experience in security management and security-based human resource management on medium to high corporate levels. Elsine has worked for 50+ countries (e.g., Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria and Colombia) in 10+ years.



Max Heck is the co-founder of Appjection. At Appjection, they noticed that people were too lazy to challenge traffic fines, even when the fines were really unjust. Indeed, red tape is demotivating… So they developed a solution: an award-winning app whereby people can easily challenge unjust traffic fines on their smartphones.




Julia Taddei is a corporate lawyer who fell in love with the SME energy after attending Podium’s previous edition in late 2016. She is now a growth hacker and project manager for Lift, an innovative app that helps job hunters by recommending positions and organisations that match their passion, purpose and potential.




Roel van Buuren is an entrepreneur of the dairy farming sector at Boerderij Landlust Maasland, who thinks outside the box. Actually, his cows are all outside of their boxes! Cows who are free to move around are more relaxed and behave more naturally, which is also good for milk production. Innovations like that are central to his farming. He is keen on learning from the city community about innovation he can bring back to his business. And the other way around.



You will be surprised by opportunities for you in the fields of IT and cyber security, impact economy, growth hacking, data analytics and peace & justice.
