Living in fictitious worlds, shopping conveniently with a click of the mouse, maintaining relationships via the relevant virtual platforms – in our dematerialised new world, fundamental human needs often go unmet.
Many people think that real life should look different and, above all, feel completely different. Better, more exciting, more authentic. With the all-encompassing theme of “AUTHENTIC EMOTIONS”, Monika Haag, Guest Speaker at this year’s Asia Pacific Conference, addresses this mood in the full knowledge that authenticity is hard to capture in words and images. After all, there are many paths that may lead to a fulfilling lifestyle.
Monika Haag, Head of Corporate Design Management, RENOLIT SE, presents “Authentic Emotions” at this year’s Asia Pacific Conference.
