10 or so CEOs, 40 senior managers speaking. No PowerPoint allowed. It should be a lot of fun.
Here’s a few of the sessions I hope will offer some insights. I’ll do my best to capture some lessons for the blog:
Collaboration in the new economy: A “what if?” look at the near future
This session puts difficult scenarios in front of our senior level speakers. Collaboration is a much-over used word. So what will it really mean in 2020, which is not so far away?
How companies will build trust in 2020
Similarly as with “collaboration”, “trust” is a very over used word. This session we’ll be asking CEOs what they will be doing, on a practical level, to build trust with consumers, and keep it. Let’s see if we can get beyond the usual platitudes.
Factories and fields: Frontline supply chain engagement to enable ethical sourcing
This session should be fascinating. CSOs and senior execs discussing one of the most interesting topics: How do we reach small farmers and vulnerable sourcing communities, and how are they best helped?
Ivory Tower Syndrome- How the financial sector can re-connect with the people they serve
Well done to the banks brave enough to take part in this one. We’ll be pushing them hard for practical commitments and plans/tips!
Stakeholder Engagement X FACTOR
Such an important area, but so badly done by many. Leading companies get beyond box ticking and use engagement to refine and improve strategy. I hope we’ll find out how, and will do my best to report back on those lessons…
More on all this, here.
