Chambers With A View

My Agenda For VivaTech 2024: The Global Economy, AI, Startups & More

Written by John Chambers

What a difference a year makes. At last year’s Viva Technology conference, held in June 2023, uncertainty was the common theme; the economic outlook was rocky, fundraising was tough, and while AI presented exciting new opportunities, many didn’t know what this technology meant for their organization. Former Cisco Executive Chairman John Chambers shared advice with leaders from around the world on how to view this downturn as an opportunity, rather than a roadblock, and lean into the wariness while others were afraid to take risks.

With this year’s conference around the corner, Chambers delves back into these topics and discuss what’s next for global business leaders. Those attending VivaTech this year – and for those who won’t be there, but are interested in hearing more – can get a sneak peek at the items (and opportunities) at the top of John Chambers’ agenda at this year’s conference in his latest exclusive column for The Innovator.
