What does the enterprise of the future look like? What actually makes an organization truly future proof in times of global change, technological revolutions and exponential developments?

How can one create a corporate culture that fosters innovation, drives impact and helps employees take action within an organization and become genuine change-makers?

And what mindset does it take to enable the right leadership, empathy, ethical decisions and build a bridge between profit and positive impact – for the local and global society?

Questions like these will determine the future competitiveness of the German economy. It has to find answers, must move fast and courageously and open itself up to new learning methods.

Germany’s first international Summit on Corporate Transformation & Exponential Thinking.

Following our successful kick-off event in Berlin „Hacking Leadership“, we will now host the first Boma Germany Summit 2019 on Corporate Transformation & Exponential Thinking. It connects international forward thinkers, experts and pioneers from the Boma Network with business leaders, managers and executive staff from across all industries and sectors in Germany.
