Butterfly to Join Global Leaders at 2017 World Government Summit
We’re honored to share that Butterfly has been invited to join an exclusive network of global leaders at this year’s World Government Summit. Held in Dubai, the global conference brings together world leaders, policy makers and experts from more than 130 countries in order to explore innovation and technology’s role in strengthening and shaping future governments and improve the lives of citizens worldwide.
A major global event, previous summit speakers include President Barack Obama, Kathy Calvin (President and Chief Executive Officer of the United Nations Foundation), Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson and many more.
Butterfly co-founders David Mendlewicz and Simon Rakosi have been invited as esteemed thought leaders on the subject of happiness, which is a core theme at this year’s event. In fact, the conference kicks off with a one-day “Global Dialogue for Happiness,” held on Feb. 11, in which speakers and attendees will discuss how healthy and positive conditions enable societies—and workplaces—to thrive.
At Butterfly, we believe that developing tomorrow’s great business leaders is critical to fostering a more engaged, more productive workforce. Last year, we released our first Happiness Index report, which explored workplace happiness and engagement trends across 5,000 employees in the U.S. and EMEA. We look forward to meeting the other 3,000 representatives, hailing both inside and outside of the tech world, to share ideas and get inspired.
We’re delighted to attend this year’s World Government Summit from Feb. 11 to Feb. 14. You can follow our updates here and on Twitter (@bttrflapp).
