21st Wharton Annual Leadership Conference

Leading in an Era of Rising Uncertainty and Greater Complexity

The 21st Wharton Annual Leadership Conference on June 21, 2017

In light of the powerful but often unanticipated waves of change sweeping through the West, China, India and elsewhere, this is a good moment to ask what companies, agencies, and non-profits can and should be doing to prepare for the rising uncertainty and greater complexity ahead.  Technological revolutions, new ways of doing business, and political shockwaves are leaving few enterprises untouched, and our 21st annual conference focused on the leadership essentials for sustaining and growing an organization when the horizons and under-footings are increasingly unclear.

The annual Wharton Leadership Conference is one of the gatherings most popular with, and most beneficial for, corporate leaders, according to Weber Shandwick’s 2011 (fifth annual) ranking of Five-Star Executive Conferences. An article by Forbes.com writer Matthew Kirdahy on the report notes that the Wharton Leadership Conference is second only to the Fortune Innovation/iMeme conference in the number of C-level speaker participants. And in a another study by Burson-Marsteller, the conference was named as one of the “Most Valued Podiums” for CEOs and senior executives.
