2018 Agenda Overview

The 2018 theme is “The Economic Imperative: Creating Growth that Works for Everyone” and the program will focus on four program pillars:
• Engaging Digital Technology
• Promoting Energy & Environmental Stewardship
• Winning the Battle for Talent
• Navigating Global Power Shifts

The 2018 program will unfold at a time when multinational companies face technology-driven industry disruption, resource scarcity, changing government policies, volatile markets, and new requirements for satisfying next generation employees and customers. The best companies are finding ways to turn these challenges into opportunities for renewal and growth.

We’ll focus on ways global companies can engage digital technologies like artificial intelligence, automation, and the cloud to transform products and processes; promote clean energy and greater environmental stewardship, win the battle for current and future talent by dedicating resources to education and re-skilling and creating more equitable corporate cultures; and effectively navigate the power shifts occurring across financial markets, trade, and politics.
