Updated
2020-11-30

On December 2, online platform Merezha, Israeli-Ukrainian Alliance’s partners, will hold an experimental conference. True to its name, the #OneMinuteConference will give the speakers only a minute to share their groundbreaking thoughts on doing business in times of change and uncertainty.


This innovative format is exactly what businesses need in times when there’s so much information and so little time to gras p it, believe the conference organizers. Instead of long speeches and presentations, speakers will limit themselves to key messages and practical advice that attendees could immediately apply to their businesses after the event.


Speaker pool of the #OneMinuteConference is made up of 17 talented entrepreneurs, business experts and visionaries from Ukraine and abroad, including Alexander Osterwalder, Tom Peters, Sir Martin Sorrell, Rita McGrath, Sharon Crost, Paul Ashcroft, Andriy Fedoriv, Oleg Gorokhovsky, Yaroslava Gres, Kateryna Kostereva, Yaroslav Morozov, Pavlo Sheremeta, Yaroslav Azhnyuk, Igor Karpets, Roman Tugashev, Mykola Palienko, and Mykhailo Traverse.


Participation is free upon registration (oneminuteconference.merezha.ua). Conference materials will only be accessible for one day.


Merezha is a project funded by the EU within the EU4Business initiative and implemented by the EBRD. It is a platform for SMEs, as well as startups and future businesses, that connects their owners with relevant knowledge and advice by the country’s leading business experts and practitioners.
