Future of Business

About this event series

The world is changing; business leaders need to change with it

Future of Business is an exciting event series where our academics interview business leaders and challenge each other to implement business changes needed for the future.

Business models have been reinvented in the last few years. With new technological advances, pandemic-induced changes, and the continuous efforts to reduce the climate change crisis, business leaders are expected to be bold and reinvent.

We hope to bring you inspirational business leaders who will share their vision on the future of business.
