CC Forum Monaco will be a showcasing alternative non-fossil-fuel based technologies multiplied by government strategies as the key factors for resolving existential issues humanity is facing today including Climate Change, Renewable Energy, Waste Management, Fighting against Poverty, Social Inclusion, etc. Max enjoys foreign languages (I have a sound knowledge of as many as 7 of them), football, chess, classical music.

7. What are your visions for the present and future?
· I have been building on some of my previous experience because what I am doing now is coming back to where I started from 20 - 25 years ago. Back then I was a very young man having graduated in business management in London. After a long career in different sectors, including architecture and design, I am now completely focused on the CC Forum series of events.
· Talking about the history of the CC Forum… The reason why I came up with this gamble is that I have been thinking a lot about the possibility of creating a global platform that would enable to convene thought leaders with the particular mission of focusing on the work they are doing. I had in mind this kind of community of doers and movers and shakers that are willing to make changes in our society. And as we stand today, it is high time to come to terms with the sheer reality of environmental and social challenges.
· Especially important is that vision in today’s world. We don't have much time to spare regarding climate and environmental action. So with CC Forum Monaco and the next editions what we are trying to do is to convene and gather top decision-makers, be they impact investors, politicians, business leaders, influencers, think tanks.
· And that is because we are now in a sensitive phase in human development that calls for action to be taken immediately. We are talking about climate change, waste management, government strategies, healthcare, well-being, education, social inclusion, philanthropy, and charity. All of these will be discussed and talked in-depth at the CC Forum Monaco and the next editions to come. Hopefully, we will be able to unveil something useful beyond philosophy.
· CC Forum Monaco’s program isn't just defined to keynotes, there will be debates, discussions, dedicated workshops, round tables, lunches with VIPS, etc. The more than 300 people we expect will have the chance to network with top investors, experts, and businesses to exchange ideas and help each other in their ventures.
· Perhaps, CC Forum Monaco is the only forum that focuses entirely on sustainable innovation-- its not a vanity fair, not a UN styled conference -- the practical mission is connecting promising startups with the investors and reach agreements and push forward towards those goals.
· Last year’s CC Forum London event was well-received to the point of having received a royal greeting by Queen Elizabeth II herself. It was a written note but still was a very nice gesture. More substantially we have seemed to have created a positive buzz about emerging technologies. Because the theme of CC Forum London last year was “Investment in emerging technologies” and that involves blockchain, AI, quantum computing, biotech, nanotech, IoT, etc.
· The challenges that brought the COVID-19 pandemic have been numerous. To start with, we were scheduled to have our Dubai event back in March but for obvious reasons, we had to reschedule it for December this year, or perhaps we will even have to hold it for after London’s edition. But with the Monaco edition, we were initially scheduled to have it for early July but we then got in contact with Monaco authorities and we agreed to postpone it for 3 or 4 months. We thought September would be quite appropriate hoping that by that time there will be real advancements in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
