Sometimes this involves us in extremely stimulating projects. For the last 4 years we have been working with FORTUNE on their live events across the globe.
This entails reaching out to the world’s most senior executives to tell them about the benefits of meeting with peers; however, this December’s event breaks new ground even for us.
Time Inc. will host the 2016 Fortune/Time Global Forum in Rome and at the Vatican, December 2 and 3.
The unprecedented gathering will convene Fortune 500 CEOs, members of the Time 100 and non-profit, academic, religious and labor leaders; a global economic system that both encourages growth and spreads its benefits will be on the agenda. The two-day conference will culminate in an address by His Holiness Pope Francis.
A good deal of our new business development service is arranging high level meetings; however, never before have been offering a meeting with a Pope!
The 2016 global forum.
Inspired by the Pope’s call for more and better jobs, broader prosperity and lasting ways to lift the poor, the theme of the 2016 Global Forum is “The 21st Century Challenge: Forging a New Social Compact.”
The event aims to encourage transformative actions by the private sector to help create a more inclusive and humane economy and aid in eradicating poverty and the refugee problem around the world.
This most rare event in partnership with the Vatican has the potential to impact the way the world thinks about these issues.
The Global Forum programme is led by Time Inc. Chief Content Officer and Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alan Murray and Time Inc. News Group Editorial Director and Time Editor-in-Chief Nancy Gibbs. A Host Committee of business and philanthropic leaders have assisted in the development of the programme. They will attend the event, and moderate conversations as well as taking an active role in developing working solutions. Members of the 2016 Global Forum Host Committee are listed below and include CEOs from Dow Chemical, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Monsanto, McKinsey, PepsiCo, Siemens, Virgin Group and WPP as well as leaders from non-profit organizations including the Rockefeller, Ford and Mo Ibrahim Foundations.
The Global Forum is one of more than a dozen live events produced annually by Fortune Live Media, including Fortune Most Powerful Women, Fortune Brainstorm Tech and Fortune MPW Next Gen. At Broadley Speaking we are delighted to be working with the World’s best!
