PAST EVENTS

2021

The theme for our 11th March event was Radical Innovation. Radical innovation has always been exciting, but is perhaps moving into the realm of necessary – for organizations and industries to compete and be resilient, for cities and governments to support citizens in a rapidly evolving digital world, and for all of us to address our global, pressing challenges. This conference explored radical innovation across a variety of facets: products and services, business models, technologies, organizational design, industries, governments, cities and more. While we want to think radically and vision our future together, we also want to act practically, so case studies and actionable approaches for making radical innovation a reality were emphasized.

AGENDA

The theme for our 8th July event was Artificial Intelligence. We explored the possibilities and challenges of artificial intelligence (AI) from multiple facets: business, government, technology, people, governance and ethics, society, and wellbeing. This event took a practical look at AI today, through case studies that showcase how organizations are using artificial intelligence to build business value now.  

AGENDA

2020

The April Web Summit topic was Modern EA with a focus on Resilience and Business Continuity.

AGENDA

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.

AGENDA

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.
