As the snow settles in Davos with the World Economic Forum (WEF) coming to an end, the co-chairs of the organization reflected on the progress of the week, at times defending the annual gathering from criticisms of elitism.
In response to a question about whether Davos was all about the world elite drinking champagne, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, documentary film maker at SOC Films and co-chair of WEF, said the meeting had brought together people from different backgrounds to solve problems.
"One of the greatest things about Davos is that everyone is approachable," Obaid-Chinoy said during a CNBC-hosted panel discussion.
"Davos is inclusive."
The other panelists also reflected on their week in the mountain ski resort in Switzerland with Franz Van Houten, CEO of Royal Philips, Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America, and Helle Thorning-Schmidt, CEO of Save The Children International, all discussing moments where they felt positive about action coming from the WEF meeting.
