Conference Description:

Shaping a sustainable future!

Can we overcome the crisis through a focus on human values and ethics?

The ongoing economic crisis has highlighted the challenge of establishing stability and growth in the face of global recession. It has also brought into focus the critical importance of the human dimension in leadership styles and strategies. In the turbulent and globalized corporate environment of increased complexity and speed, traditional governance styles based on unrestricted risk- and profit-taking in corporate boardrooms seem to be giving way to new approaches that are more responsive to broader societal interests.

While the risks involved in corporate decision making are increasing constantly, the economic crisis appears to be pointing to leadership techniques that improve on the traditional ways of doing business.

Perhaps the world of business and the world of human values are no longer two separate worlds. Emphasizing human values may no longer be less competitive. Even with increased competition in business, there are very compelling reasons why ethics should not be compromised, and why ethics could in fact be a prerequisite to profitability.

This year’s conference will examine the measures needed to shape a sustainable future. In these most challenging times, is the focus on human values and ethics an indispensable key to overcoming the crisis? Or is there no space for such an approach? What lessons can be learned from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and what is the leadership style that can pave the way for a sustainable future?
