EDGE 2020 Goes Virtual
Organised and curated by WOBI each year in cities across the Americas, Europe, and Asia, World Business Forum is a two-day event that brings together restless minds united by their passion for business.
WOBI is pleased to announce the first ever digital World Business Forum Sydney. In light of the unique challenges this year has brought, we are excited to present a brand-new online format for all of our global World Business Forums. It is our core belief that challenges must be seen as opportunities, and this is our opportunity to bring you the best speaker line-up ever seen in WBF Sydney’s history. To help your organisations succeed in the face of today’s unprecedented challenges, we have created an inspiring agenda with world renowned figures that will share their view on how to overcome and adapt to the new reality.
In a world of information overload, World Business Forum focuses on the issues most relevant to today’s businesspeople, stimulating new thinking and inspiring action. It also provides a unique networking environment to connect with like-minded professionals.
With great change comes great opportunity.
As we navigate one of the most profound disruptions in human history, we are entering what will be an extraordinary era of unprecedented transformation.
Existing companies will revolutionise, and new ones will be born. Industries will be reshaped, and new products and services emerge.
It is a time for courage, for creativity, for action.
A time that will define your leadership.
A time for REMAKERS.
Are you prepared for the challenge?
New problems cannot be solved with old ways of thinking. We are called on to challenge our conventions, while promoting the insight and ingenuity of people across our organisations.
Sharing, collaboration and human relationships have taken on a newfound importance. Personal engagement with colleagues, partners and providers is critical. What needs to be done now, cannot be done alone.
We are experiencing change at a remarkable scale. We require the skills to adapt to this new environment and an orientation to action as we drive innovation of business models, products and processes.
Welcome to the era of REMAKERS.
