Forum Objective

Each year, the Nikkei Global Management Forum brings together some of the world’s most accomplished business executives to discuss corporate strategies, management philosophies and the latest global trends.

The theme of the 18th forum is
“Achieving Breakthroughs in an Uncertain World”.

Dark clouds have gathered over the global economy: the threat of terrorism, a resurgence of populism, anemic growth, Brexit and the ensuing market turmoil. All of these factors are contributing to political and economic instability. For companies, the question is not only how to cope with the unexpected, but how to thrive in these turbulent times. One of the key answers to the question is management’s leadership to achieve breakthroughs.

We would like to ask proven executives from around the globe to share their insights on this challenge.

We sincerely look forward to your participation.
