2020 Theme:

The Future of Strategic Transformation, Leadership and Learning 


The Global Forum and Cambridge/Boston communities have been very engaged, offering many suggestions as to topics and presenters, with many having already kindly committed to being with us. Among these are Marilee Adams (author of Change Your Questions, Change Your Life), Drew Boyd (co-author of Inside the Box), Tomas Carlsson (CEO, NCC), Jake Cohen (Senior Associate Dean, MIT Sloan School of Management), Jim Dowd (Senior Fellow, Harvard Business School), Joe Raelin (author of Creating Leaderful Organizations), Professor Don Sadoway (MIT), and representatives from BankABC (Bahrain), the Federal Reserve, IBM, Lilly, and UPS, to name a few.

We’ll be meeting in Cambridge (across the river from Boston) at MIT’s Media Lab. Appropriately, our theme for 2020 is “The Future”. We shall explore the future of transformational and strategic changes taking places in critical industries and companies, in countries and societies, and with leadership and learning.

In addition to these plenary sessions, there will be workshops on “open” innovation, organizational cultural change, entrepreneurship, “co-development” and Action Learning, an Author’s session and a Wisdom Panel, to name a few themes and subjects. Another highlight will be meetings with technology entrepreneurs, “smart city” government leaders, NGO’s, companies and organizations.
One of our dinners will be held at MIT’s Museum which we’ll have all to ourselves. It will also be the venue for our annual Global Forum/Robert L. Dilworth Awards for Outstanding Contributions.
