|09.30||Welcome: The Exponential Decade
Welcome to the 2020s – a decade which will, for better or worse, be defined by exponential change. Our opening panel explores what exponential change looks like across three different domains: technology, society and nature. Together, these trends will shape the context in which businesses must operate during the Exponential Decade.
|Session 1: Stepping Up Politically
There is no apolitical path to a genuinely regenerative, inclusive economy. So how are leaders from both private and public sectors stepping up to tackle the tough business of reforming markets? What’s the role of different actors – from industry associations to environmental regulators – in shaping market outcomes? And what will it take to make 2020 a breakthrough year for climate politics?
|Session 2: Stepping Up Financially
How do you change the way money thinks? The millions of decisions made every second in the financial markets determine the kind of capitalism we get: short-term, extractive and doomed to collapse, or long-term, inclusive and regenerative. We know which kind of capitalism we want so how do we rewire finance to get money flowing to where it’s needed?
|Session 3: Stepping Up Collaboratively
For most companies, the path to resilience and regeneration will require unprecedented collaboration across value chains to disrupt the status quo. How are businesses across different industries stepping up to this challenge? What does it take to make new business models stick and scale? And how can businesses share risk and reward with partners up- and downstream?
|Session 4: Stepping Up Individually
Tomorrow’s capitalism requires a very different kind of leadership from yesterday’s capitalism. What does that new style of leadership look and feel like? How can the current generation of leaders empower the next generation to rise to the challenges ahead? And how can each and every one of us access the reserves of courage and resilience that we know will be needed in this crucial decade?
