OliverWyman Forum

Leadership Disrupted 2019

What does it mean to be a leader of a global organization in a disrupted world? In our London event, we explored the issue.


In a global climate of unprecedented geopolitical uncertainty, rapid technological advancement, and digital disruption, we are facing a crisis of purpose and belonging at all levels — company, community, country. Leadership is being disrupted and effective leadership is more complex than ever.

In November, the Oliver Wyman Forum gathered an intimate group of the C-suite under the recently launched Forum banner to discuss a range of topical perspectives, including: (1) the state of politics, with reflections immediately post the Brexit deadline, (2) the role of corporates and how purpose translates practically to strategy, and (3) the power and perils of data by those on the cutting edge.
