In the kick-off meeting in Davos, one member challenged ETH by saying that what they would want from the ETH Circle is the opportunity to meet eminent ETH alumni. This event was a direct response to this: the first in a new series called the ETH Circle Spotlight. This new event format features a distinguished speaker, followed by a networking opportunity. The session was moderated by Chris Luebkeman (Direc-tor, Arup Global Foresight – now Head of Strategic Foresight at ETH Zurich), and featured ETH Presi-dent Joël Mesot in conversation with Special Guest Urs Hölzle (Senior Vice President for Technical Infra-structure, Google).
