Leading Change: Transforming Business and Society in the Digital Age

  • Santorini
  • 4 June 2018 - 8 June 2018

Around the world, societies are adapting to and shaping powerful economic, technological and social trends, which in turn frame what is asked of leaders.

This program is therefore built on three vertical pillars:

  • The shift in macroeconomic fundamentals
  • The importance of innovation
  • The underlying demographic dynamics

and scaffolded on the horizontal themes of:

  • The digitisation of society and business processes
  • The importance of cross-cultural understanding and communication.

Within this context, the core aspects of leadership will be addressed and focus placed on developing a strategy that sets clear direction, while at the same time, achieving the necessary agility to be able to respond to the rapidly changing digital environment. The key questions are: How can leaders engage and motivate others to affect change? What are the macroeconomic developments that shape business and society that leaders need to be kept abreast of? How has digital innovation come to play a key role in leading change? Why is cross-cultural leadership so vital in today’s diverse and complex  world?

This program brings together executives from diverse backgrounds and professional experience to work alongside INSEAD faculty from a range of disciplines, who will provide a stimulating, interactive, and engaging environment for thought, discussion, and reflection.

INSEAD, the Business school of the world, has been ranked Number 1 in the world by the Financial Times for 2 consecutive years (2016 and 2017) for its Global MBA program.  It has also been ranked Number 1 by Forbes for ‘Highest Return on Investment’ of any MBA program in the world.

We are truly privileged to have INSEAD as our Academic Partner and to offer you this program on the inspirational setting of the Greek island of Santorini.

We have chosen the spectacular island of Santorini for this program on Leading Change – Transforming Business and Society in the Digital Age, as Santorini was host to the most advanced civilizations in the ancient world.  It was a leader in change and transformation. It was a leading trading center. Its society enjoyed the oldest water utilities system ever discovered  with both hot and cold water supplies.  The dual pipe system, the advanced architecture, and the apparent layout of the archaeological finds on Santorini resemble Plato’s description of the legendary lost city of Atlantis.

Today, Santorini boasts of a thriving business community and a society that has transformed itself to welcome over 1.5m visitors every year and to be one of the world’s best known and most sought after islands.
