BCG’s delegation—led by BCG CEO, Christoph Schweizer—joined public and private sector leaders at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, January 15–19, 2024, in Davos to address global societal and business challenges.
People, societies, and companies are facing a world in flux as they continue to navigate unprecedented changes and prolonged challenges related to war, climate change, global macroeconomics, artificial intelligence, the erosion of trust on multiple levels, and other pressing issues. This year’s theme, “Rebuilding Trust,” spoke to the need for new and upgraded platforms for dialogue and the effective deployment of technologies in order to create gains for society and business.
As leaders gather in Davos, companies need to ensure geopolitics is front of mind for decision makers.

When people feel safe speaking up in the workplace, says BCG’s Ulrike Schwarz-Runer, innovation and better business outcomes follow.
