Real innovation happens at the intersection of diversity.
This summit was an intimate gathering of more than 35 CEOs who are leaders from both the developed and hi-growth markets. These companies are involved in the full gamut of commercial endeavour from finance, manufacturing, energy and distribution to technology. The summit was driven by leaders in their field. They challenged us to engage, interact and participate.
From this diversity came innovation. That is the purpose of the Networked Enterprise Institute. This, our third annual CEO Summit sustained a momentum of innovation in strategic thinking.
Our theme — Race-fit to lead and innovate — was about being mentally and physically fit enough to grow our businesses in today’s hyper-dynamic market. Growth will come from change, from disruption. Being race-fit gives us the courage to disrupt and the conviction and stamina to see it through to sustained success.
When we left Coworth Park, we were better equipped to challenge ourselves, our organisation and our people as to how fit we are to win our race.
I was delighted and proud to host this meeting and I look forward to sharing this learning with you.
MD & Group CEO
