With global competition for highly skilled talent, there exists greater executive mobility than ever before.

This session will focus on individual level responsibility and the need to compete.
Digitalisation and Transformational Technology

Valerie Richardson Gradient Descent
Ian Richardson University of Stockholm Executive Education
Today, with advances in AI, machine learning, and quantum computing, we can expect the pace of disruption and transformation in many established markets to only accelerate. This session will focus on what we can do to come to terms with radical change and the potential for transformative business generation and renewal.
Global Business & Sustainability
Tommy Borglund Forever Sustainable
Annika Ramsköld Vattenfall
Most multinational corporations integrate sustainability principles in their governance frameworks, and many invest significantly more than is required for the purposes of straightforward reputation management. The reason, aside from simply “doing good”, is simple: Increasing numbers of businesses are discovering that sustainability can also be very good for business. This session will look at the case for sustainability and what more, if anything, business could – and should – be doing to improve economic, social, and environmental outcomes.
Strategies in Uncertain Times
Michael Bahar, Eversheds Sutherland
Ian Richardson, University of Stockholm Executive Education
As markets become more dynamic, and disruptive entrants destabilize once impregnable industries, many of the strategic orthodoxies that have guided managers in the past, are being called into question today. How can managers respond to the reality of global complexity and uncertainty and, simultaneously, deliver clarity and meaningful control. This session will look at some of the emergent ideas in this area.
