About the Event
Each month, we organize a one-hour round table meeting of global leaders, exchanging their views on a strategic theme.
We call this sequel 'Xpedition to the Source'.
The theme on October 12th is
'From managing shareholders to managing stakeholders'
More and more companies are realizing that shareholders are only part of their responsibility. In Europe we call this the Rhineland model, versus the Anglo-Saxon model where shareholders are the primary concern of the leadership of a company.
Stakeholders are employees, customers, neighbours, suppliers, shareholders and society as a whole. It is difficult to take all these parties into consideration. And it is difficult to explain to shareholders that they are not the only party involved.
This Xpedition tries to discover how business leaders handle this quite often difficult situation.
For the following sessions, you can expect topics like:
The Round Table
The topic will be introduced by a well-known leader in the business community.
In our studio, we invite several opinion leaders who share their vision, experiences, and opportunities regarding the theme. Then we enter into a virtual dialogue with the roundtable. There will be a wider audience of invitees. The audience can listen to the discussion and pose questions during the event.
