Virtual Summit replacing the VL Summit in Aarhus 2020 – Read more

MARCH 27, 2020, COPENHAGEN.
Virtual Summit replacing the VL Summit in Aarhus 2020

Dear participant,

Regrettably we have had to cancel the Summit 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns. As your health and safety are our highest priority, the Supervisory Board has decided to cancel the physical Summit. In stead we are launching a virtual Summit – still the 4th of June – with a number of the fantastic keynotes performing.

We hope that you will find time to check in on our site on the 4th of June – or any time later at your choice to watch the program which will be made available for free to all VL-members.

Stay safe and strong.

Danish Management Society (VL)

How can we stay responsible when it’s all about surviving?

On Thursday the 4th of June at 15.00 local time Copenhagen and 09.00 am local time New York, we launch the ambitious Vitual VL Summit 2020 with:

  • Rana Foroohar, Global Business Columnist, Associate Editor, FINANCIAL TIMES & Global Economic Analyst, CNN
  • Sir Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover
  • Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen, Deputy Secretary-General, OECD
  • Henrik Andersen, President & CEO, Vestas
  • Thomas Hofman-Bang, CEO, The Danish Industry Foundation
  • Sir Nick Clegg, Vice President Global Affairs and Communications, Facebook
  • and not least – yourself.

The Danish TV-journalist Clement Kjersgaard will be hosting the global live streaming of the interviews and debate with our guest from the US, England, France and Denmark.

We will focus on the crucial dilemmas that business leaders must deal with in the aftermath of the corona crisis. How can businesses maintain their active and positive commitments to social responsibility at a time when surviving and getting back on track demands their full attention?

The pandemic’s impact on the global economy and markets is uncertain and may well push the world into a serious recession.

It’s tempting to cut costs to just survive, but at the same time it is time to innovate and to create new business models and products. It’s time to consider new supply chains and ways of trade.

All this raises fundamental and crucial questions for the business leaders.

How long time will the crisis last? How serious is it going to be? What is the way forward? How can we maintain values and social responsibility in the new post corona adaption process? And how can we create the necessary change to ‘Build Back Better’ and find the opportunities on the other side of the crisis?

These are just some of the questions which Clement Kjersgaard will ask you and our guests.

Be part of the Virtual Summit and knowledge share in interactive discussions with the aim of creating inspiration to discover new possibilities for your business and to contribute to solutions for the huge challenges facing our world.

The Summit 2020 is by invitation only and participation is free of charge.

The Virtual Summit 2020 is produced in cooperation with Jyske Bank.TV, Denmark.
