Programme

The 2017 Programme:
The 2017 Agenda: Harnessing the power of disruption
There is an urgent and imperative need to adjust to a new disruptive reality. What tools are essential for emerging leaders in this age of environmental, social, technological and political disruption? The Women of the Future Summit gathers together current and emerging leaders from across the globe, to discuss how it is possible to harness the power of disruption. We will explore how this power can be used to reframe and broaden perspectives, to drive innovation and to fuel success for the global tomorrow.
