Benefits of the Nikkei Global
Management Forum

The Nikkei Global Management Forum brings together some of the world’s most successful business executives to discuss management philosophies, corporate strategies, and the latest global trends in management.

Immerse yourself in two days of inspiring presentations and discussions by global business leaders

It is an opportunity to listen directly to talks by the world’s most accomplished business executives. In this two-day event, you will find yourself deeply engrossed in listening to stimulating speeches by over 10 world-renowned business leaders from home and abroad about their views on work, management philosophies, and leadership.

“How can we make innovation happen in this rapidly changing business landscape and shape a great future with our own hands?” Be inspired by each speaker’s talk on the power of innovation.

The future vision of business leaders in a COVID-19 world

COVID-19 has greatly impacted business culture in areas including workstyle, policy, and strategy. As telework and digital transformation (DX) proceed at a growing pace, the importance of IT has increased like never before. As leading technologies such as AI and IoT are on different trajectories and developing more rapidly than prior to COVID-19, every people expect to bring these technologies to real life. On the other hand, uncertainty about the future of the international situation has increased, including the sharpening of the conflict between the United States and China, and there are signs of a change in the future of the global era, coupled with the economic stagnation caused by COVID-19. The question is how to survive this change. How will businesses assess risk in developing new business strategies? This forum takes an in-depth look at business in the COVID-19 era.

Experienced journalists from Nikkei and FT as well as professors from HBS and IMD will draw out what the business executives actually did and thought in real-life situations

Senior business correspondents and professors at prestigious business schools will moderate the presentations to draw out the most intriguing and valuable stories from well-known business leaders, ranging from their lesser-known anecdotes and philosophy of life to management know-how and real business strategies. Don’t miss the remarks and questions from these skilled moderators, or ‘professional listeners,’ which make the presentations livelier.
