DLD Launches Online Event Series DLD Sync

Extraordinary times require new (event) formats: The international conference network DLD (Digital, Life, Design) launches a new interactive online event series called DLD Sync featuring one selected DLD speaker in each episode. In typical DLD manner, the corona pandemic and its impact are examined from a variety of perspectives together with business leaders, innovation champions, world-class scientists, and brilliant thinkers to exchange ideas and  insights. Because who could be better suited to tackle a global crisis than such a diverse group of bright minds? Next week, on 28 April 2020, Oxford economist Carl Benedikt Frey will start with the first edition of DLD Sync.


Our new online format DLD Sync is aimed to inspire the discussion about the challenges of the pandemic. We need new solutions and ideas to overcome the current crisis. As an international, interdisciplinary network, the DLD Community can contribute unexpected perspectives and food for thought.”

What is DLD Sync?

DLD Sync are interactive digital round-tables, each focusing on one speaker from the DLD community. In the upcoming weeks experts from various fields will give us their take on the most pressing issues of our time, across a broad range of subjects. These digital round-tables are for free, will be max. 60 minutes long and hosted by DLD Founder Steffi Czerny and DLD Chairman Yossi Vardi. Along the lines of this year’s DLD theme “What are you adding?” the conversation will be interactive. Attendees are invited to ask questions live during the event or in advance as part of their registration.

Future of Work & Covid-19

The starting signal for DLD Sync will be given on 28 April 2020 with the renowned economic historian and author Carl Benedikt Frey who will talk about “Future of Work – What Can History Teach Us About the Impact of Covid-19?”. He directs the program on the Future of Work at the Oxford Martin School and has written the book “The Technology Trap”. At the first edition of DLD Sync he will discuss amongst others the following questions: How does the economic fallout from the corona crisis compare to the 1918 flu pandemic and the 2008 financial crisis? And which key technologies and which jobs will be most demanded in the near future?

The next DLD Sync speaker will be Scott Galloway on 5 May 2020 at 3.30pm – longtime DLD friend, marketing professor at NYU and bestselling author.
