The April Web Summit topic was Modern EA with a focus on Resilience and Business Continuity.
The theme for our 30 July 24-hour event was Digital Business: Designing the Future. With the backdrop of the accelerating digital transformation of our world, and as a result of the pandemic, a new ability to question our assumptions, we have an opportunity to step back and reimagine a better future. The intent is to bring together futurists, thought leaders, and architects to explore a vision for how organizations should look and behave in our rapidly changing world.
The theme for our 19th November 24-hour event was Architecting for Global Good: The Role of Business and Technology. A confluence of events, drivers, trends and shifting perspectives point to new ways of leveraging business and technology for the global good. The coexistence of profit and purpose is proving to be a reality, climate action plans and sustainability concerns have moved up on the business agenda, and with continued shifts from shareholder focus to stakeholder focus, the very purpose of business is being revisited. But make no mistake, these efforts are not all about doing good for the sake of doing good – they have real business benefits. This includes new market opportunities, greater long-run shareholder profits, more customers and increased loyalty, supply chain reliability, better employee retention and attraction, public goodwill, and business longevity to name just a few.
