The World Economic Forum #WEF22 recently held it’s annual meeting at Davos, bringing together over 2,000 leaders and experts from around the globe, all committed to improving the state of the world.
The WEF provides a unique collaborative environment in which to reconnect, share insights, gain fresh perspectives, and build problem-solving communities and initiatives. Against a backdrop of deepening global frictions and fractures, it acts as starting point for a new era of global responsibility and cooperation.
Here’s a look at the trending topics highlighted during this event and the NSB speaker experts that can cover these themes at your next event:
Many WEF discussions focus on the Future of Work and the top 10 Job Skills for 2025 – a list released by the WEF from their research. This highlights essential skills, including soft skills like creativity & innovation, with increased importance looking to the future.
