Join mindful people from around the world exploring how to create economic systems and workplaces that contribute to a more prosperous, just and sustainable civilization.
We will start by understanding diversity in all its forms: diversity of views, of economic systems, of company cultures, of gender and explore its possibilities and how to harness its potentialities.
We will then explore how workplaces and economic systems are evolving and the new ways to harness diversity creating a new breed of collaborative, learning organizations.
You will receive and create new insights, ideas, questions and processes allowing you to adapt in a better way to the fast evolving environment that surrounds us and the increasing need to connect business models and economic systems to meaningful impact on society.
In this meeting, we aim to open our eyes to new trends and explore together the new mindsets that will allow us to fully harness the new world order that is emerging, having us and our organizations thrive fully in this exciting and fast changing world evolution.

Join our next free webinar :
Leading & Working in Multicultural Teams" on
Monday 27th March, 12pm UK time
Is globalization bringing us closer together? Think again. With refugees crossing cultures without preparation, in extreme haste for basic survival, the vastly documented dangers of intercultural miscommunication are intensifying. Already, in a multicultural workplace or in international teams dispersed around the globe, tensions multiply when disagreements occur over the smallest of things. In our hyper-connected world (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook etc.), colliding cultures increasingly cause misperceptions and mistrust, affecting worker performance and productivity.
The purpose of this webinar is to explore varying approaches to work and
conflict resolution that impact productivity and trust when working with
people from diverse backgrounds. We will look at a case study of a failed
international merger and 2-3 critical incidents that highlight the need to
be aware of culture-specific core values that underlie behaviour and use
this as a springboard to build trust with international colleagues and
Key learning points in this webinar will include:
• A method to approach cross-cultural situations confidently
• Skills to build understanding across cultural gaps
• Collaboration that leverages differences as assets

Presentation: Why Leaders need Cultural Intelligence
IQ, now CQ? As globalization has rendered the environment more complex, dynamic, and competitive, the ability to function effectively in different cultural contexts, called Cultural Intelligence (CQ), has never been more important for organizations, leaders and employees.
Employees who possess a high level of cultural intelligence play an important role in bridging divides and knowledge gaps in an organization: educating their peers about different cultures; transferring knowledge between otherwise disparate groups; helping to build interpersonal connections and smooth the interpersonal processes in a multicultural workforce

Discussion: Cultural Intelligence in a Changing World
We live in an age where the world is getting smaller and more interconnected but much more complex. Our external environment is changing rapidly and all the challenges we see today will require international collaboration to solve.
But how well do we understand the cultures around the world that we need to work with to bring international projects (such as ‘saving the environment’) to fruition?
