BCG at Davos

We at BCG are excited 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.

Bringing Our Expertise to Davos

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.
