Xpedition to the Source

About the Event

Each month, we organize a one-hour round table meeting of global leaders, exchanging their views on a strategic theme.
We call this sequel 'Xpedition to the Source'.

The Purpose

This world is rapidly changing, and many industries require a systemic change.
Systemic change is both necessary and risky, therefore in need of courageous leaders.
Enterprises are the changemakers of this decade and their leaders live in a turbulent time. This Xpedition towards a new business reality is a difficult one, in which leaders need other leaders to exchange ideas with, to reflect on their challenges and to be inspired.

The Theme

The theme on January 11th is:

'The influence of the SDGs'

Please visit our Vimeo channel to replay previous Xpeditions.

The Round Table

The topic is introduced by a well-known leader in the business community.

In our studio, we invite several opinion leaders who share their vision, experiences, and opportunities regarding the theme. Then we enter into a virtual dialogue with the roundtable. The audience can listen to the discussion and pose questions during the event.

Round Table Guests

On January 11th we will welcome several inspiring guests in our studio. Our headliner is: Jeffrey D. Sachs, world-renowned economics professor, bestselling author, innovative educator, and global leader in sustainable development. He's seen as the 'father' of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
