Panel Discussion Highlights | WEF 2019 in Davos
This year’s gathering answered the questions to the following questions such as:
- How will the future of the workforce shape and be shaped by this unprecedented wave of technological change?
- Are longterm strategies applicable when faced with so much change and uncertainty?
- How will leaders create policies to ensure that human capital realizes its potential?
- How can businesses navigate the gap between hype and reality to stay ahead of the curve and contribute to progress?
Last year’s event, The Business Case for Openness, covered the growing awareness among investors about the value of engaging constructively with global issues, especially in a world heading toward protectionism and seclusion. Watch highlights from last year’s programme, supported by the Brightline Initiative, Project Management Institute and The Boston Consulting Group.
This is good food for thought especially for us African and developing countries where the issues of protectionism is slowly piling up the heat in the business forum.
