How do organizations successful worldwide face the challenges of globalization, digitization and other mega-trends?
On November 9 & 10, 2016, the congress World Market Leaders in Austria in the “Tagungszentrum” (Conference Centre) Schönbrunn in Vienna, Austria, Europe, gives the opportunity of learning from and with the best. The Austrian companies most successful on an international scale will present their success models and give insight into the processes that they use to profit from the changes. The congress particularly serves to show how companies leading on the world market handle the social trends, such as DIGITIZATION, DISRUPTION, DYNAMICS or DIVERSITY, and can optimally put them to use.
The second afternoon of the congress “World Market Leaders in Austria” will mainly be devoted to CSR. The programme of this part of the congress will start with an opening keynote speech (the speaker is still being requested) and will then deal with the topic of “sustainable entrepreneurship in a globalized world – are value creation, value added and differentiation still possible at all?” The relevant discussions will be led by Dr. René Schmidpeter – CSR Dialogue Forum. Additional contents of the focal topic will be formed by sustainable communication, sustainable product design and energy management. The panel discussion before the break will have a financial focus and illuminate the importance of CSR in the balance sheet. The workshop after the break will close interactively, best practice examples being given by DI Dr. Christian Plas of denkstatt.
