The World In 2019: Positioning for the Future

Windsor Castle 11th January

The "Windsor Insights" is a flagship programme exclusively for a select group of influencers. They are members of "International Alliance", the private business club, along with invited guests. International board-level executives, directors and representatives from ambitious fast-growing enterprises come together periodically throughout the year.

What they have in common is that they are all operating in a complex, global business environment, and they intend to remain innovative and competitive. They are present so that they are informed of trends that could impact on the future of their enterprises. Many in attendance are innovators and disruptors themselves, changing the face of how we do business. They come together to discuss, learn and contribute to the agenda so that they gain valuable insight and have the opportunity to connect with each other deeply, to learn and exchange alternative perspectives and approaches. Some are transforming their business models, some entering new markets and some are building knowledge around how they operate and respond to the shift in corporate mindset.

Ultimately they know that they need to provide a real meaning and purpose to what they do. The case studies that we will consider will be from a range of industries, however, the insights can be applied to most businesses. The approaches vary and this presents the opportunity for us to learn from each other about our respective success factors and models.

THE EXPERIENCE
