A Global Virtual Summit
Session Date: 19 November 2020
The future has arrived earlier than expected.
Covid-19 is as much a time machine as it is a virus. 2020 has been the most disruptive year of this century, accelerating change in business, work, technology and health. Where companies once had time to strategize for the future, now they must pivot in the present and brace themselves for what happens next.
On 19 November 2020, Duke Corporate Education assembled top business leaders and thinkers for a free two-hour, high impact virtual summit — The Davos of Human Capital: Leadership for a Better World.
3,000+ global leaders attended the live event to hear experienced leaders share their insights and strategies on how to respond to a very different world post-pandemic — and make it a better place.
“We should consider for a moment
that changing behavior is the same as
launching a space rocket.”
