The questions will be agreed well in advance of the event. After 15 minutes, the speaker will be asked to make a bold prediction about their industry. For the benefit of the live audience, a Q&A session will take place overseen by a moderator.

A Codex Talk will give the audience something they can walk away with: valuable insights, actionable information, fresh perspectives, and renewed optimism.

Lead sponsors will include BT. Media Partners will include Harvard Business Review and Asian Lite
