Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Media

Media is more influential today than ever before. As an industry, media is taking hold and unraveling traditional notions of economy, changing our social development and shifting power in ways unimaginable several years ago. How can today’s media leaders navigate this ever-changing landscape?

Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Technology

When it comes to 21st century technology, we’re talking about the making of a new human race. Technology has morphed into a tool powerful enough to fundamentally redesign the human species, creating a new DNA for how we live, work and socialize.

Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Philanthropy

Philanthropy is creating a new capital market. Could this new exchange have even more value than equity markets? Indeed it can, and it’s a product of something called philanthrocapitalism: dynamic business paradigms and investment strategies that help fuel prosperity and progress across the globe.

Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Infrastructure

More than a simple network of roads and rails, infrastructure is a crucial building block of capitalism. Its ingredients – energy, metals, materials – are all traded on the stock exchange, and these trades have far-reaching impact. Governments are just now realizing that there is money to be made from trading infrastructure, making this one of the hottest markets around.

Executive Vision: Leadership in Action - Global Logistics

Media. Technology. Philanthropy. Infrastructure. ALL of these sectors have one thing in common: global logistics. The logistics industry, i.e. the business of transporting goods and commodities around the world, is the lifeblood of our economy, delivering the benefits of media, technology, philanthropy and infrastructure to end-users.
