Organized and curated by WOBI each year in cities across the Americas, Europe and Asia, World Business Forum is a two-day event that brings together thousands of restless minds united by their passion for business.
They come to learn from and be inspired by some of the world’s most renowned figures from business and beyond – a blend of content comprised of CEOs, entrepreneurs, innovators, thinkers, artists and sportspeople.
In a world of information overload, World Business Forum focuses on the issues most relevant to today’s businesspeople, stimulating new thinking and inspiring action.
As technological advancement accelerates transformation, we are at an inflection point where the traditional ways of doing business are becoming rapidly obsolete.
The principles of incrementalism and linear thinking, once the foundations of our approach to strategy and business, are being replaced by new principles of exponentialism.
For leaders and organizations capable of making the shift from an incremental to an exponential mindset there lies within your grasp the opportunity to drive unprecedented growth; to empower radical innovation; to liberate true potential; to engage at incredible speed and scale; to execute on ever-more ambitious visions.
