What is the Summit for the Future?
The Club of Amsterdam presents its second, global “Summit for the Future”
bringing together international Thought Leaders to discuss significant,
global challenges and opportunities.
This year we focus on the subject of risk and the role of risk
in innovation and global
Without risk taking there is no progress, no growth and no prosperity.
The Summit is an opportunity for participants to stand back and reflect
upon the role of risk in enterprise and society, on how the global spectrum
of risk is changing and to acquire new tools and thinking with which
to harness risk as a force for growth in the future.
Richter, former Director of the World Economic Forum, in
charge of Asian affairs: "As
corporations confront uncertainties that pose important strategic dilemma
in their endeavour to grow into global players they need to understand
the current and emerging risks associated with their business."
Living with risk requires a trade-off, a vision of the good-gamble as
well as the nerve to take that gamble. The complexity of modern life,
the proliferation of new forms of communication and the deluge of available
data makes this more difficult than ever before. This Summit is an opportunity
to think creatively about the role
of risk in our lives as individuals, as members of organisations and
as a society.
