The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2019


2019 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

Heidrick & Struggles is proud to participate for the 12th year as a strategic partner of The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, held January 22nd - January 25th, 2019.

This year's meeting theme is Globalization 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As technology continues advancing at a rapid pace and ongoing geopolitical and economic transformation has become the norm, we see that the Fourth Industrial Revolution is shaping the physical, digital and biological worlds to create changes and innovations at an unparalleled speed and scale. The changes we see today are not isolated to a specific industry or geography - they are universal and omnipresent.

Heidrick & Struggles is honored to send a delegation to participate in these important conversations and provide our unique insights and perspectives on the related leadership opportunities and challenges that organizations around the world are facing.
