Summit for the Future blog
The Club of Amsterdam presents its global “Summit for the Future on Risk”, which will take place in Amsterdam on May 3-5, 2006. This second Summit will bring together international Thought Leaders to discuss significant, global challenges and opportunities. This time the speakers will focus on the subject of risk and the role of risk in innovation and global growth.
Without risk taking there is no progress, no growth and no prosperity. The Summit is an opportunity for participants to stand back and reflect upon the role of risk in enterprise and society, on how the global spectrum of risk is changing and to acquire new tools and thinking with which to harness risk as a force for growth in the future.
Frank-Juergen Richter, former Director of the World Economic Forum, in charge of Asian affairs, and speaker at the Summit: “As corporations confront uncertainties that pose important strategic dilemma in their
endeavour to grow into global players they need to understand the current and emerging risks associated with their business.”
Living with risk requires a trade-off, a vision of the good-gamble as well as the nerve to take that gamble. The complexity of modern life, the proliferation of new forms of communication and the deluge of available data
makes this more difficult than ever before. This Summit is an opportunity to think creatively about the role of risk in our lives as individuals, as members of organisations and as a society.
The topics are Life Sciences, Media & Entertainment, Trade - Asia, Healthcare, Corporate Governance, Innovation as Risk Taking, Knowledge based Risk Management, Values and Spirituality, Cross-Cultural Competence and Creative Leadership.
