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 September 14th is

'How sustainable are my business partners'.

More companies than ever before are trying to be fully sustainable. That requires a responsibility beyond company borders. Sustainability of products and services can only be seen in the light of the whole supply chain. But getting control over the supply chain requires a solid knowledge of the suppliers that companies are dealing with. This is a substantial new challenge for leadership.


For the following sessions, you can expect topics like:

Including all our employees in our sustainable future

Creating a Regenerative Strategy for your company

Moving from shareholder primacy to stakeholder policy

The Round Table

The topic will be 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. There will be a wider audience of invitees. The audience can listen to the discussion and pose questions during the event.
