Business leaders need a new mindset to win in today’s world.

Explore the changing world, learning from the most innovative companies, and a sneak preview of the best new ideas to explore at the Thinkers50 European Business Forum on 9-10 May in Odense. The preview events are:

  • 15th March, 0800 – 0930: Ålborg with Væksthus Nordjylland

Markets of relentless change, exponential technologies, social and political uncertainty, challenge every business leader. Ideas can change the world, but making sense of this change, and making new strategies happen is not easy. In fact, everything you learn’t at business school has probably changed.

In this fast, disruptive and inspiring session, bestselling author Peter Fisk will help you explore:

  • How the world has changed for you – and how to find the best new opportunities for growth. West to East, big to small, human and technologies, big data and imagination.
  • Who are the world’s most innovative companies – and what you can learn from them. Alibaba and Buzzfeed to Hyperloop and Xiaomi, shaking up every market right now.
  • How you can change your game – transform your business, your market, and leadership. How can you lead like Elon Musk, harness the new possibilities and drive exponential growth?
  • What are the 50 best new ideas in business – learning from today’s top business gurus. Strategy beyond competition, organisation without hierarchy, progress above profit.

Peter will finish by explaining why you should be at The European Business Forum in Odense on 9-10 May, two incredibly exciting days together with many of Europe’s business CEOs …  including the world’s #1 thinker (Michael Porter), #1 leader (Lars Rebein Sorensen), and #1 coach (Marshall Goldsmith).
