A Complete Event for Brain, Heart, and Taste!
You are planning an event for customers, employees, management team or selected invited people, and you want the maximum impact. How should do you do?
Engage brain, heart, and taste!
Begin with an inspiring and thoughtful seminar on digitization, digital transformation, business intelligence, or digital leadership. Listen to Mats Lewan—Futurist, Research Analyst, Journalist, and Writer—one of Sweden’s leading experts in digitalization and future technology trends.
Also, add a workshop focusing on any particular business development area.
When the participants are filled with new impressions and ideas and the content needs to be digested, everyone should get a chance to talk to each other while strengthening the group’s team spirit. Then it’s time for…
Heart and taste:
An evening of teambuilding and delicious Italian cooking is the perfect way to continue the event.
Under the leadership of Alessia Cerulli—one of Sweden’s most colorful profiles in genuine Italian cooking and founder of Buonappetito.se—the group enters a warm and hearty Italian atmosphere. The evening begins with an aperitivo with sparkling wine, salame, prosciutto, and cheese and continues with Italian cooking in groups. Put your apron on!
Feel free to add a wine tasting experience with a qualified sommelier, expert in Italian wine. Or some tasting of olive oil, different kinds of cheese or other selected Italian delicacies. Or all of it!
During the evening, Alessia shares her thorough knowledge of Italian cuisine and Italian traditions with the group, and all along, there is plenty of time for talking and having fun.
When everything is cooked and ready, we all sit down together to have dinner, as in a large Italian family.
The overall experience of the event …
… is an inspiring stimulus for all the senses, where new thoughts and ideas—food for thought—are deepened and enhanced by the pleasant food and social experience—food for pleasure.
The program can also be varied in different forms, ranging from an extended conference with several speakers to the whole event being conducted in a beautiful and inspiring environment in Italy. Contact us at Digitalian for different suggestions.

“An amazing and inspiring talk initiated by bringing an uneasy and unsettling feeling when Mats in an excellent manner visualizes where our world is headed and at what furious pace this is happening. The lecture ends splendidly where the audience’s feeling of unease is abruptly replaced by hope in that he manages to raise awareness of the enormous and amazing opportunities we have in the radical paradigm shift that we currently find ourselves in.”

“Thank you so much, Alessia for the fantastic day of Italian cooking and of learning more about the Italian culture and olive oils! I not only learned more about it but will from now on start using the ‘proper’ olive oil. It was a truly fantastic event and definitely a success! Apparently, it was the best team building event so far. Thank you so much as well for sending us the recipes—people have been asking for them—and the olive oil. Everything was so delicious!”
