In 2017, Aarhus Symposium explored the theme “Leading Through Change”.
Globalisation and international cooperation have moved countries closer, enabling firms to grow beyond borders. Global developments continuously reshape the foundation of society, and leaders must ensure that these developments come to benefit the civilization.
As the world becomes increasingly complex, so does decision-making. Leaders walk a fine and twisted line between creating advancement in their organisation and reacting to change in their surroundings.
At Aarhus Symposium 2017, the aim was to create a diverse programme where 13 leaders and key decision-makers gave their take on the theme Leading Through Change. The theme was explored through four tracks: New Markets, New Society, New Consumers, and New Technologies.
The speakers shared their perspectives on change, pointing out uncertainty and ambiguity. However, it is when leading through times of change that great leaders stand out. For leaders to be successful, today and tomorrow, they must understand when to create changes and when to adapt to them.
