2018 European Business Forum in Odense, Denmark

The second annual European Business Forum was held in Odense, Denmark on 25-26 September. EBF is the premier meeting for business leaders in Europe. It brings together the continent’s top business people with the world’s leading management gurus at “the Davos of business thinking.”

Don Tapscott kicked off day one with a “moonshot” speech calling for “a declaration of interdependence” and a “new social contract for the digital society.” Roger Martin gave this year’s European Business Lecture on day two, calling for a “scientific revolution” in business thinking, with a dramatic shift to organisations as systems, strategy as execution, and projects as the norm.

Don Tapscott’s exclusive white paper is available here: “A Declaration of Interdependence: Towards a new social contract for the digital society.”
