World of Business Ideas (WOBI), the leader in management and leadership content, is pleased to announce the 15th Annual World Business Forum NYC, which takes place November 14th and 15th at the Lincoln Center. The World Business Forum is a two-day event that brings together senior-level decision makers from across all industries to learn from and be inspired by the world’s most renowned business thought leaders and practitioners.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Exponential” which highlights how rapid technological advancement has affected the traditional ways of doing business. It is no longer viable to hold on to business practices that focus on the principles of incrementalism and linear thinking, but rather the idea is to focus management and leadership around the ideas of speed, abundance, networks and empowerment. This is the new challenge for leaders at a time when all industries are being disrupted by new technologies.
The program will feature top level keynote speakers such as former General Electric (GE) CEO Jeff Immelt, Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman, renowned entrepreneur Arianna Huffington, emotional intelligence pioneer Dan Goleman and marketing maven Seth Godin among others.
The global business conference will convene more than 2,000 attendees representing 500+ companies from around the world. Among them, more than 60 percent are C-level and executive-level professionals. 2018 marks the 15th anniversary of the World Business Forum which has hosted many influential leaders and thinkers over the years including President Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Jack Welch, Alan Mulally, Angela Ahrendts, Sir Richard Branson, Ursula Burns, Michael Porter, Jim Collins and Clayton Christensen.
“The reason I come – and why I keep coming- is because I feel part of something. People are getting an education here. It’s always exciting to be part of an intellectual movement and I feel like that’s what’s going on here,” says Malcolm Gladwell, world-renowned journalist, sociologist and bestselling author.
“We are delighted to celebrate our 15th year of the World Business Forum, where we gather influencers and leaders to provide content and advice on how to implement practical strategies for business success,” says Chris Stanley, General Manager of WOBI USA. “In times of great transformation across all industries, it is important now more than ever to provide a forum that will empower leaders to build better and stronger businesses.”
