WILLEMSTAD, CURAÇAO – The Marketing Network Curaçao, in collaboration with CHATA, is organizing a lecture on “Strategic Leadership” on Tuesday August 13, from 8 a.m. in the Avila Beach Hotel.
“We are on the eve of a revolution that will change the whole society. Various technologies will not only lead to a fourth industrial revolution but to a social revolution.” says Bob de Wit, professor of Strategic Leadership at Nyenrode Business University. In this lecture De Wit will reflect on the question of what such a “social revolution” means for the strategy of companies and the leadership that is needed.
The digital revolution is more fundamental than we think; as technological advances occur, a new societal phase is beginning. The fundamentals of our society, including the importance of employment, will be endangered, what does this mean for the future?
