Power Hour: Nicky Newton-King Reports back on Davos 2016
We kick-off the 2016 JSE Power Hour series with insights from JSE CEO, Nicky Newton-King, who attended the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos on 20-23 January.
The Davos meetings involve approximately 3,000 internationally renowned leading economists, politicians, scientists and business people, with the aim of shaping global, regional and industrial agendas.
The theme for Davos this year is “Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution”. Building on an ubiquitous and mobile internet, smaller, cheaper and more powerful sensors, as well as artificial intelligence and machine learning, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is distinct in the speed, scale and force at which it transforms entire systems of production, distribution, consumption - and possibly the very essence of human nature.
Note: attendance to this event is based on a first come first served basis.
