The Executive Summit Everyone’s Talking About

The event was one of the biggest recent learning experiences for me. From start to finish, [it] delivered on all counts.

I met wonderful people, I heard smart ideas, I engaged with powerful experiences and was the recipient of outstanding hospitality.

Great speakers, content, and attendees. What I liked most were the many opportunities to meet and get to know new colleagues, many of whom are sharing the same challenges.

Again, the combination of inspiring and informing speakers and content—combined with great networking opportunities and flawless execution of the meeting—was superb.

How can we best spark innovation, drive organizational transformation, and extract the maximum value from technology? What are the secrets to catalyzing fresh growth and keeping up with customers’ fast-changing demands? How do we not only address our immediate competitive needs but also build resilience to overcome the challenges that the market throws our way?

For business leaders today, these questions—and many others—have become more pressing than ever. But finding the answers seems increasingly daunting.

Since 2016, Consilium@BCG has provided an exclusive forum where the world’s top business leaders and influencers come together and grapple with the toughest questions facing them. This annual C-suite summit—an invitation-only gathering—is BCG’s flagship event. We have designed this executive summit expressly to create an environment where business leaders can share insights and learn from their peers—and take away actionable ideas that they can apply immediately in their organizations.

Who Attends

Each Consilium@BCG event is attended by senior business executives who lead the world’s premier corporations and organizations. The event provides leaders with a wealth of opportunities to hear from plenary speakers and to interact with one another:

  • Participate in main stage plenary sessions
  • Share ideas with peers during our intimate executive conversations
  • Connect with peers during breakfast, lunch, and breaks, as well as our welcome dinner


A Distinguished Roster of Plenary Speakers

Every Consilium@BCG features stellar plenary speakers hailing from industries as diverse as telecommunications, health care, financial services, commercial aviation, education, publishing, retail, and fast-moving consumer goods—to name just a few.
