Future-Ready: Are You and Your Business Prepared? Steps to Ensure You Are

In an increasingly complex and unpredictable age, being future-ready becomes a source of competitive advantage and resilience. It enables corporate leaders to adapt to new realities faster, develop robust internal capabilities with a sharper focus, and find new sources of growth with an elevated sense of purpose.

Join us in Milan on 21 May for an insightful event with IMD President Jean-Fran├žois Manzoni, Howard Yu, LEGO┬« Professor of Management and Innovation at IMD, included in the Thinkers50 2023 global ranking, St├ęphane JG Girod, Professor of Strategy and Organizational Innovation at IMD, and Stefano Pellandini, Senior Partner and CEO at GEA – Consulenti di Direzione.

Together, we will explore the Future Readiness Indicator, an exclusive framework developed by IMD to assist organizations across all industries in preparing for future challenges and opportunities.

Exclusive deep-dive panels, expertly moderated by IMD Professors, will feature discussions with CEOs and family business owners from both global and Italian companies. These panels will focus specifically on the luxury, consumer goods, automotive, and financial services sectors, providing in-depth insights and analysis.

Far beyond an academic discussion, Professor Manzoni will explore the practical steps organizations can take to become future ready from a leadership perspective, with a focus on preparing your top teams to make themselves win more in good times and lose less in bad times.

The event coincides with the launch of the latest Future Readiness indicator, showcasing the leading companies in financial services, automotive companies, luxury, and consumer packaged goods. Previous results have been covered by CNBC, Bloomberg, and the BBC.
