We at BCG are honored to send our delegation—led by our CEO, Christoph Schweizer—to join public and private leaders at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in May 2022 in Davos to address global societal and business challenges.
This year’s theme, “History at a Turning Point: Government Policies and Business Strategies,” is a response to the war in Ukraine, the resulting humanitarian tragedies, and the ongoing global pandemic. Leaders are currently being called on to respond to urgent humanitarian and security needs while simultaneously addressing persistent global issues such as inequality and climate change. Despite these challenges, we firmly believe in the power of unlocking the potential of those who advance the world. In this vein, we’re looking forward to joining leading experts from business, society, and government to work toward solutions that improve livelihoods and shape a more sustainable future.
Our experts are looking forward to diving deep into conversations with fellow thinkers and leaders to discuss, among other topics, artificial intelligence and climate and sustainability—critical forces that will continue to influence policymaking and business strategy in the years ahead.
Our CEO, Christoph Schweizer, will lead BCG’s delegation at Davos. Prior to assuming his current role, Christoph served as BCG’s chairman for Central and Eastern Europe and the Middle East. He has also served as a member of the firm's Executive and Operating Committees since 2014. Christoph’s interest in artificial intelligence and climate and sustainability—as well as his thoughts on leadership amid today’s uncertainty—are sure to be key drivers of conversation.

If business wants to use AI at scale, adhering to the technical guidelines for responsible AI development isn’t enough. It must obtain society’s explicit approval to deploy the technology.
