In our first Board Talk podcast, we are joined by Gerd Leonhard: Futurist, Humanist, Filmmaker, Author of “Technology vs. Humanity” and CEO of The Futures Agency and Dr. Michael Grampp, Chief Economist at Deloitte Switzerland, who explore how businesses can build a good and sustainable future and what executives and boards need to focus on to make it happen. Amidst the uncertainties and everyday realities of a post pandemic world, the increasing urgency to address climate change, the societal challenges of technological transformation and the current geopolitical developments, the world continues to change at a mind-boggling pace. With the next 10 years expected to bring more change than the previous 100 years, boards and executives need to consider how to set up their organisations today to navigate the challenges of a fragmenting world and ensure a sustainable future. Listen to the podcast to find out more or listen to the German interview on the Future Talk Podcast.
