The Global Boardroom

2nd Edition: Shaping the recovery
November 11–13 • Online

Strategies for a world transformed by crisis

Registration is now open. Join the 3rd edition of The Global Boardroom on May 4, 5 and 6, 2021.

We will take a close look at how governments, business and finance around the world are continuing to cope with unprecedented challenges, while also adjusting to major new developments, including an incoming US administration and what appears to be a significant advance in the development of a coronavirus vaccine.

The 3rd edition of The Global Boardroom will gather policy-makers, CEOs, investors and other thought leaders over three days, once again spanning multiple time zones from Asia through to Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
