The Investor Perspective:

There is no question that capitalism as we know it is dead.

CEOs have no choice but to have both a shareholder return & a stakeholder return—managing and measuring both.

Across the two days we’ll be hosting sessions and interactive ‘meet and speak’ opportunities where corporates, investors and others can share their ideas and challenges.

Only through open and constructive dialogue will we accelerate the required transformation.
