Leading Minds for Future Impact

HBS’s GCC Future Impact Forum will enable public and private leaders to re-shape, re-imagine and re-engineer our business and government organizations for greater impact in the next 20 years. The forum will aim to throw light on key challenges such as:

  • The vision of 2030 and the role of the private sector
  • Soft Power and its effect on economy and the region’s image
  • Family Business Succession
Additionally, the event will delve into the primary four challenges highlighted in the previous year’s forum including Healthcare, National Talent, Food Security, Transformation and Sustainability.
The forum invites key government, business leaders, HBS academics, its alumni CEOs, all carefully selected from across the GCC to address core issues from multiple perspectives focused on coming up with impactful solutions to these challenges. The forum will be held over 2 days featuring keynotes, panel discussions, fire side chats, and lightning talks.
