“Is it really all Doom and Gloom? Navigating uncertainty towards a new society.”

Tuesday, June 27 from 15.00h – 21.30h

Felix Meritis Amsterdam

As the world emerges from the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic, we find ourselves confronted with a host of global challenges that demand our attention. While a tragic war unfolds in Ukraine, double-digit inflation exacerbates inequality, and the climate crisis deepens, it is crucial to ask ourselves: Is there room for hope, and can we make a difference?

Join us at this year’s Strategy Forum as we delve into the complex and uncertain landscape of our VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world. Strategy Forum is the flagship annual event of the INSEAD Alumni Association The Netherlands that brings together high-profile speakers from business, politics, and academia, as well as hundreds of alumni based in the Netherlands.

This year, together, as business leaders and members of Dutch society, we will explore how to leverage our strengths and forge a brighter future.

Immerse yourself in this captivating and thought-provoking event on June 27, set in an iconic venue in the heart of Amsterdam.
