Speakers 2019

C2 Montréal leaves no stone unturned in the search for those fascinating folks who are breaking down barriers and transforming their fields, in many cases opening up whole new frontiers. Speakers are an engaging mix of global trailblazers, business innovators, entrepreneurial icons, social game changers and world-class experts representing a diverse array of industries. Their talks are an open doorway into a deeper exploration of the topics raised and share one common goal: to inspire creative solutions for commercial problems.

And we’re only getting started. Stay tuned for more speaker announcements in the weeks to come.
