These are turbulent times with many sources of disruption either present or emerging in the world, from rising geopolitical tensions and pressures for sustainability to supply chain quandaries, an evolving pandemic or post-pandemic situation to macro environmental challenges looming on the horizon and a digital shift that continues to upend known paradigms.
The world is undoubtedly much more complex than before, and the tried and tested approaches aren’t enough for companies to survive let alone thrive.
This event is the place for deep reflections on the most pressing risks, vulnerabilities, and challenges facing some of world’s largest companies. It is also a forum for discovering emerging opportunities and new paths to success. You will gain deep insights from first-class speakers and inspiring leaders on how they are mastering the disruptive challenges of today to build overall resilience and bring more agility and growth to your organization.
