7th Edition: Strategies for Growth and Disruption
8–10 November 2023 • Digital Conference
Join us in November 2023 for the 7th edition of The Global Boardroom, the Financial Times' award-winning digital conference.
Nations and economies are still adjusting to the impact of high inflation and the risks of recession. Geopolitical unrest continues to weigh on markets and the consequences of climate change are increasingly evident. The need for organisations to transform in the face of disruption is strong, but so are concerns about issues such as productivity and sustainability.
What are the most effective strategies for growth in the midst of geopolitical and economic uncertainty? To discuss this and more, The Global Boardroom will bring more than 100 leaders in business, policy and finance together with top FT journalists for three days of in-depth analysis and discussion, covering all key sectors and regions.
Plus, Australia’s energy transition, the refugee crisis and Japan’s economy
At some stage this war will likely end at the negotiating table but the likelihood of any acceptable outcome increases with our support to Ukraine.”
Navigating the world of business in an uncertain and highly volatile world is tough. Surround yourself with the information, inspiration and people who are sharing their strategies for a world transformed by crisis.
Hear directly from leading policy-makers on the steps they are taking to support economies and business
Find out how leading CEOs from a range of industries are coping with the crisis and preparing for a recovery
Go beyond the news to explore the impact of the crisis through carefully curated, in-depth discussions
Pose questions to thought leaders and get instant analysis from FT journalists after key sessions
