We believe information, knowledge sharing and networking are irreplaceable catalysts for transformation and growth. The more we know, the better we are prepared for tough decisions and turbulent times.
We also believe that information, even the most critical and strategic business news, has only limited value if not brought into perspective. This is particularly so given the world is undergoing such deep reshuffling. To build the future, we cannot be tied to the present day and current technology. The growth in computing power and the exponential inclusion of digital in our daily lives outstrips our ability to reframe our ethical and legal approach to digital decision making. No technology is immune from ethical and regulatory questions.
