#Future of Talks: The Future of Business Leadership

 Saturday, 09 March 2019 20:47

This year, Business for Peace has launched an afterwork series with MESH in Oslo. Following our first events, The Future of Cities and The Future of Climate Leadership we’re happy to announce our third afterwork talk, The Future of Business Leadership. During this conversation, we will discuss the growing need for conventional thinking about business leadership to change. We’ll cover how globalisation, climate change, and consumer demands for transparency are all shifting the landscape for businesses, prompting leaders to consider not only profits, but also people and the planet.

To ensure a sustainable and inclusive future, we need ethical leadership from all facets of society to work together, but how are today’s purpose-driven business leaders approaching this landscape? And what will bold business leadership look like in the future?
