About 100 senior Euro 500 executives from more than 20 countries convened in Versailles for BCG’s eighth European Strategy Leadership Summit. The theme—“Navigating the Future: New Realities in Business, Geopolitics, and Technology”—could not have been more timely. The sense that emerged was that while business leaders face disruption on many fronts—shifts in political leadership, challenges to the long-standing consensus on free trade and globalization, and the rise of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics—the best strategy is engagement, not retreat. Here are eight takeaways from the event.
