Aarhus Symposium 2017

LEADING THROUGH CHANGE

The world of tomorrow will always be different from the one we know today. Change encompasses nearly every aspect of life, keeping the world in a constant state of fluctuation. On one hand, leaders hold the power to facilitate change; on the other hand, they are faced with trends that exceed them and which can invade entire industries or even nations. At Aarhus Symposium 2017, we seek to explore the interplay between following the trends of today and setting the agenda of tomorrow.

THE TRACKS OF AARHUS SYMPOSIUM 2017

NEW SOCIETY?

Developments around the world are continuously re-shaping the foundation of society, urging leaders in the public sector to provide sustainable conditions for both firms and citizens. How can leaders ensure that the opportunities brought about by global developments will increase welfare for citizens while also help businesses grow?

NEW MARKETS?

With globalisation, companies gain access to markets previously out of reach. While this presents new opportunities for growth, competition also intensifies in home markets. How can leaders establish a strong position for their companies in new, unfamiliar markets while maintaining dominance at home?

NEW CONSUMERS?

On a daily basis, consumers are exposed to thousands of choices that complicate their decision-making. As navigating information becomes increasingly difficult, so does a company’s job of standing out. How can leaders successfully connect with consumers in an increasingly complex world?

NEW TECHNOLOGIES?

Technological progress constantly pushes the limits of what people perceive as possible. Leaders must continuously embrace new technologies and convert these into competitive advantages – or risk being left behind. How will new technologies affect the way leaders run their businesses?
