Plenary Panel: Thinking the Unthinkable with Nik Gowing

Wednesday November 2, 1:45 pm-2:30 pm

A proliferation of ‘unthinkable’ events since the 2014 Russian seizure of Crimea, the 60-percent crash in oil prices, and Europe’s migration crises have revealed a new fragility at the highest levels of corporate and public-service leadership. After the Brexit referendum, the roller-coaster U.S. presidential election, and the VW scandal, many question the capacity and readiness of executives to think unthinkables before they happen. This interactive session will discuss why leaders in the public and private sectors continue to struggle, first to identify, then to adapt to the new, fast-changing 'new normal'. An interim summary and analysis of the new evidence is available here: www.thinkunthinkable.org/report.
