Emerging Issues - Defining Our Future
Geopolitical events, the global economy, sustainability, and advances in technology all influence the way organisations behave.

But where are we headed?
Keynote speaker Mujtaba Rahman, who leads Eurasia Group’s Europe practice, will provide a fascinating look into what’s happening in Europe which this year faces multiple risks – BREXIT, GREXIT, refugees – and the economic and geopolitical implications these carry.
