Systemic and interlinked global challenges are embedded in the thinking of companies, governments and markets. The appetite to grapple with these has developed in bursts, typically in response to actual events but often languishing over time. This summit frames the response of companies, nations and global societies to the threat of shocks and trends whose impacts may connect across geographies into future decades. The macro view assesses governments & markets, their appetite and fitness for understanding how global networks, which increase economic flows, increase tail risk for the world. The corporate view asks how to assess the exposure of one’s value chain to external changes. In both cases, the coin of chance has opportunity as well as disaster stamped on it; opportunity or threat, for whom? This conference proposes an active agenda at different stakeholder levels – to embed knowledge of systemic and interlinked global challenges into planning today and response as the need arises.
Keynote talk by Professor Ian Goldin, Professor of Globalisation and Development, University of Oxford with highlights from his recent book, “Rescue: From Global Crisis to a Better World”
We invite participation from a wide variety of specialists and business managers, including threat specialists, academics, policy-makers, practitioners and advisors to explore these topics together. The conference will be held at Cambridge Judge Business School with dinner at Queen’s College, University of Cambridge.
