Managing the future
ESMT Annual Forum
ESMT ANNUAL Forum 2019
JUNE 6, 2019
Artificial intelligence, digitalization, a growing skepticism regarding the benefits of globalization, trade barriers, employee recruitment and retention, and the shift of influence caused by the increasing economic prowess of regions once considered “developing” – these are just a few global challenges that businesses face today. After the global economy’s slow recovery from the financial crisis of the late 2000s, international economic institutions are now predicting that the economy will decelerate over the next two years. But is the outlook for business really so gloomy?
The ESMT Annual Forum 2019 will illuminate the risks and the possibilities that have arisen from global change. How will current political trends influence business in the next decade? How should firms best prepare for a possible economic downturn? What opportunities do new technologies and increasing digitalization bring to industry? How can companies attract and retain the best talent? How can we foster leaders who can shape the global landscape for the better?
