About the summit

Shaping Tomorrow’s Business Realities

An organisation becomes fit for the future through its richness of ideas, approaches and perspectives. More and more women are taking up positions of responsibility on executive and supervisory boards across the world, thereby entering top management. The growing dynamics of this trend cannot be ignored. And one thing is clear: wherever this happens, old patterns of thought are being disbanded. We profit from this increased variety of thoughts, perspectives and solutions.

“You, the female decision makers, are shaping this dynamic.”

The Global Female Leaders summit brings together high-achieving leaders from all over the world. It gives focus to new ways of thinking and presents aspects we think we already understand from a new and unfamiliar perspective. This summit enables women to start a dialogue; women who shape their societies and their organisations – women who make their mark. The Global Female Leaders summit covers a wide range of aspects, from the vital questions of the world economy to initiatives which demonstrate exemplary actions in times of crisis. It directs attention to new markets and fields of action for companies and regions, enables the joint exploration of visions and strategies, and extends the boundaries of previous knowledge.

“Intensive networking in an international, cross-sector circle of top-class
executives forms the central focus of the summit –
dialogue creates the best ideas!”

The participants will work out their road map for shaping the future: what are the issues which we as business leaders have to change fundamentally in order to create a world that future generations want to live in? How has leadership developed in recent years? What kind of leaders do we need for the challenges of tomorrow? Which skills, missions and values do female leaders and male leaders offer and how can we benefit from this diversity? But first and foremost, how do we make sure that women and men can develop their leadership skills and make their talents available for business and society?

Join in, move forward, discuss and network with the leading female executives from all over the world at the Global Female Leaders summit!

I’m looking forward to welcoming you!
