Redefining Value

Overview

There is a call to redefine business leadership in the midst of green recovery and the “new normal”. What are the new business priorities and how to empower the business sector to better influence sustainability?

Learnings

  • Unprecedented disruptions, persistent global challenges and new risks are prompting business leaders to reflect on and redefine business priorities.
  • Long-term business sustainability and success could be measured not only by profit and financial benefits to shareholders, but also by shared value created for stakeholders and society at large.
  • Business leadership is required to bring about mindset shift and system transformation within the organisation and to inspire similar change amongst your supply chain partners.

Post Event Actions

  • Identify the risks and challenges that would pose the greatest impact on your business
  • Define success within your organisation and how you would measure it
  • Re-assess priorities of your organisation and/or your sector given the new risks and challenges you are facing
  • Draw up a plan to charge towards your new priorities
