Why 21st Century Requires Collaboration, Innovation, & A New Style of Leadership
Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship In Action
Description: The 21st century is nothing like we have experienced before: whether it is the still ongoing pandemic, increasing adverse climate and weather related records, the 6th wave of mass extinction or the economic crises that are expected as a consequence of all of it. In order to steer our planet towards a sustainable path, incremental innovation is no longer enough. What is required is transformation, and radically re-thinking the way we ‘do things around here’. Bettina will share her thoughts on what has led us to where we are, and why collaboration and a different style of leadership are essential for moving forward.
· A clear understanding of what has led us to where we are
