The need to balance economic, technological, societal, and social interests has never been greater or more complex than today, and this places completely new demands on the world’s business leaders.

A stronger focus on sustainability and responsible use of technology, coupled with increased attention to general business ethics and the role businesses play in society, means there is now a need for more inspiration and good ideas about how we as business leaders can stay decisive and keep a sense of perspective about the many changes happening around us.

At the Annual Danish Top Executive Summit 2020, we focus on the dilemmas that business leaders and board members must be able to deal with in order to combine a high level of morals and corporate social responsibility with the demands of the financial bottom line. Both shareholders, employees, clients, and society at large have come to expect that successful businesses will be able to solve this equation.

The Annual Danish Top Executive Summit 2020 presents speakers that are talented business leaders able to inspire dialogue and interaction. In this manner, we help each other prepare for engaging with future strategies and management models in the field of “Responsible Business’.

The Annual Danish Top Executive Summit 2020 focuses on the balance between responsible business practices on the global and the very local levels. This includes the balance between creating value for both the individual company and for society at large, as well as the technological balance between human beings and robots or artificial intelligence.

Global Responsibility

 

This track focuses on the big global challenges of technological progress, cyber security, and the struggle to achieve the climate targets of the Paris Agreement. All these issues also affect Danish businesses.

Should Europe blaze its own trail in the digital area, caught in the middle between China and the USA, who are both striving in their own way to become digital superpowers? What global threats are businesses facing in the field of cyber security? And can the new European Commission deliver on the climate and become the new global role model?

What important dilemmas arise in all three areas?

The Danish Model of Responsibility

 

This track focuses on the responsibility of Danish business leaders to take the lead and translate corporate social responsibility into a competitive and innovative new management model, with greater responsibility for employees, the climate, new technologies, equality, and social interventions.

The responsible business

 

This track focuses on how responsible businesses can achieve responsible and sustainable value creation in the short, middle, and long term.

A responsible business is more than just an economic actor that generates wealth. It also solves human and social needs as part of a wider perspective on society at large. The results are not only to be measured in terms of the dividends for shareholders, but also in terms of how the business achieves its goals regarding the climate, society, and decent business practices.
