Leading in transition
ESMT Annual Forum
June 7, 2018
Technology is rapidly transforming our world. Whether evidenced by the latest smartphones, smart homes, or “smart industry,” technological innovations are shaping the personal and the political, the everyday and the future. Businesses are both leading the charge for change and seeking to understand how to harness these developments in innumerable ways.
The ESMT Annual Forum invites attendees to examine the challenges, opportunities, and impacts of technology in business. What are the lessons to be learned from big data analytics, and how can business leaders use them to drive organizational change? How will technology support innovative business models and shape competitive market strategies? In what ways will robotics and artificial intelligence transform traditional industries in sustainable ways?
Forum keynotes and panel discussions will bring together political and business leaders, academics, and technology experts to discuss these questions and others. Additionally, breakout sessions led by ESMT faculty and external experts will invite participants to focus on specific outcomes of technology implementation in business.
Please join us for a day of exploration and debate.
