Deloitte at Davos 2015
World Economic Forum Annual Meeting
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting (held in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, and typically referred to as Davos) presents a yearly opportunity to gauge the world’s perspective on pressing economic and social issues. Global leaders participate in a variety of panel discussions and private events, addressing topics at the forefront of the world agenda.
The Annual Meeting in Davos is an incredible convening center for global stakeholders and an opportunity to share perspectives on the issues facing global business and beyond. In 2014, Deloitte’s delegation convened in Davos from 22-25 January along with business and government leaders from around the globe to address the theme The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Politics, Business and Society.
In 2014 Deloitte focused on the role of business in driving progress, competitiveness, and innovation. Building on InnovationLive introduced in 2013, DeloitteDavosLive (#DeloitteDavosLive) drove a conversation about how business and government can create positive impact and growth. The Millennial generation is a key voice on this topic, and Deloitte released the results of the 2014 Millennial Survey at Davos.
