Description: Decision-makers echo in a common voice the need for “next generation leadership” with the willingness to make decisions on the basis of sustainability. Yet, little or not enough is done to sharpen a talent pool ready to ride the numerous opportunities and tackle the wicked challenges the circular economy brings along. This afternoon’s curated gathering of practitioners, policy makers and entrepreneurs will allow them to dissect and deep dive into a topic that keeps most CEOs awake at night.
