What people say

About the conference

Boris Drilo

“For sure, better times are ahead and the current unstable circumstances will change for the better. Events like Future Tense help people focus on what is positive and important. Today we talked about technology from a different perspective, focusing on the impact of technology on society. A lot of new technologies are now entering the maturing phase when they are becoming transformative, both for society and for the economy.”

Boris Drilo, HT Board Member & CTIO


“I think the future will be better than today. If we look at the last 100, 200 or 1000 years, we can notice the progress in the world moving forward both scientifically and in terms of humanity, increasing efficiency, better standards, and quality of life. I am looking forward to everything Future Tense Conference brings. Just like the future, I think that Future Tense is getting better, I think that there is another beautiful and better future ahead of the conference"

Mihael Furjan, Teva/Pliva Croatia & SEE, General Manager


"I am a huge optimist; I believe in people and all of us. I believe that for the love of our children, we want to leave them something good. The entire lineup of speakers at the conference is perfect. I'm glad that we didn't stick to technology and other tech speech buzzwords, but we rather talked about the impact of technology on society. I think it is very important that this conference takes place in Zagreb because it is a very good starting point for opening the dimension of the future that we in Croatia need. I would like to see more state authorities next year so that we can convey our messages directly to them and that sometimes they can be reminded of them"

Boris Nemšić, Delta Partners, Chairman of the Board

“Future Tense conferences have always been interesting. Mike Walsh gave us food for thought with his lecture. Listening to all these inspiring speakers, one gets surprised at what awaits us, where we are going, and how we have been changing our life habits, leadership, education, and tourism. To stop for a second, to think a little bit about what awaits us in 2050, that's what the Future Tense Conference gave us.”
