Purposeful Leadership: Strategies to Drive the Renewal of Business and Society

23-24 April 2021, Paulaner am Nockherberg, Munich

A renewal of the social contract between business and society is urgently needed. And the INSEAD alumni community is uniquely positioned to lead the way. The two-day Alumni Forum Europe in Munich provides an exceptional platform  to reflect and discuss with senior business leaders, INSEAD faculty and alumni trailblazers what purposeful leadership entails in this new, rapidly changing environment.

The world is facing a number of challenges so pressing that business as usual is no longer an option. Technological disruption, rising inequality, geopolitical shifts and climate change invite us all to rethink the way in which we conduct our businesses, well beyond the classic tenets of managing for the bottom line and shareholder value maximisation.

Learn how to grasp the latest opportunities in a wide range of fields, including transportation and mobility, renewable energy, industry 4.0 and social inclusion. As INSEAD celebrates six decades bringing together people, cultures and ideas, there is no better opportunity to discover how to bolster your company’s strategy in order to make a positive impact on business and society.

This forum is a joint project of INSEAD and the Alumni Association of Germany (IAAG). Click on the button above to register for the forum, but do not forget to check out the activities organised by the IAAG in the "Around the forum" section.

The IWiB does so by joining forces with like-minded men to lead together to achieve the full potential of women in business and society.
