Dare to Lead
Shaping the Ecosystems of the Future

Thursday, June 20 from 15.00h – 21.30h

Wicked Grounds Amsterdam

As the world contends with complex challenges like shifting power dynamics, election stresses, and escalating climate change, the need for collaborative and interconnected ecosystems across key sectors —aviation, finance, food and agriculture, healthcare, and sustainability—is clear. No single industry can tackle these issues alone, highlighting the necessity for cooperation and alignment.

By understanding and actively participating in the design of these ecosystems, industries can leverage each other’s strengths to innovate and adapt. Through unified efforts, industries can generate powerful momentum for transformative change.

Reflecting on this interconnectedness begs the question: How can your industry actively participate and innovate within these ecosystems to address today’s global challenges? Dare to lead in shaping our collective future.

Join us at this year’s Strategy Forum – Dare to Lead, as we explore the forefront of corporate innovation, navigating through the evolving landscape that define our times.

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 alumni based in the Netherlands. This year, as business leaders and members of the Dutch community, we’re coming together to explore ways to use our collective strengths to create a brighter future.

Mark your calendars for an engaging and thought-provoking event on June 20, at Wicked Grounds in Amsterdam.
