JOHANNESBURG: 18 FEBRUARY 2020
The Big Trends 2020 Breakfast
Making sense of the noise: The #s that will shift our 2020 and the 'so what?' and 'now what?'
This breakfast event provides a powerful look at the political, socio-economic, technological, digital and business trends that will impact our 2020 and beyond.
We are moving into a discontinuous, disruptive, digital world, underpinned by rapid disintermediation and sector shifts. This compels us to explore new ways to drive growth and competitiveness of firms and organisations. Whether you are an entrepreneur, a consultant or someone who works in a large corporate- keeping up to date with a changing world and the opportunities it creates is the only way to remain on top of your game.
