Sustainable Finance Outlook for 2020

COMPLETED

Sustainability will be the most significant driver of opportunity in 2020, for businesses, investors, policy makers and for society and individuals at large. Going forward, there will be more exponential growth in relation to responsible investment strategies. Sustainability is seen as a key driver of growth in a low-growth world. But what are the remaining challenges and opportunities to ensure investors and society are benefiting from these developments, also in the context of sustainable development and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals?

Driving Human Capital towards Knowledge Economies

COMPLETED

If we want to build a knowledge based economy (and here we explain what is it and why is it important) we need everyone on board. The policy maker has to understand the needs of the entrepreneur and the entrepreneur has to understand what policy limitations are standing in their way, once they know, it is easier for them to advocate (and specify) change without getting frustrated. Even if legislation takes a long time to change, knowing the gaps will give youth the agility to maneuver in rough grounds.

Leading with Grace & Resilience

December 16, 2 pm GMT

In business our understanding of how we should lead has been profoundly shaped by history, and by the men who have maintained power at the decision-making tables.  For women this has often limited  the perception of the difference they can make. We are more than our past, our heritage and cultural circumstances and these are times of profound disruption.  It is now we must rise to meet the challenges ahead by leading with grace and resilience; balancing the qualities of the feminine and masculine to create a better future!
