Global Women's Executive Summit 2016
6-7 October 2016 | Mandarin Oriental | New York
Senior women from around the globe met to explore the role of women in innovation and times of disruption in their organizations. Our keynote speaker, Whitney Johnson, along with a number of leading women shared their personal stories and brought insights from the public, private, and civic sectors.
Predictable Unpredictability: Innovation in Society
We will soon share our planet with 9bn people. How are we going to provide food, water, energy and security for all? Migration, exclusion, political instability, secularism and extremism are all issues for business, as much as they are for society. We address how business and community work together to find solutions for the social issues our world will face.
Leadership Through Disruption
Disruptive innovation comes from people and organizations who “innovate for themselves” to make a difference for others. Leaders who operate outside of their comfort zones embracing diversity across functions, industries and cultures – developing a mind-set of continuous adaptation – are thought to be best equipped to lead disruptive innovation and are most prepared to use setbacks as springboards to success.
Falling oil prices, the FinTech revolution, and advances in digital health. The world around us is changing rapidly. How are the world's leading businesses and the challengers in those sectors embracing change and putting innovation at the heart of their business model, while navigating an increasingly complex regulatory environment?
