On Thursday afternoon, 18 Sept., Summit delegates will have the opportunity to participate in interactive discussions in one of the two Summit tracks – New Economic Paradigms (NEP) and Transformational Business (TB). Each delegate will be required to choose a track.
Both the New Economic Paradigms (NEP) and Transformational Business (TB) tracks will have the same basic structure:
- Definitions (5-10 mins.).
NEP: What is a paradigm and what does it entail? Several definitions will be put forth right at the beginning of the track.
TB: What is Transformational Business? What are its aims and who are the stakeholders?
The definitions will be part of Session 1.
- Session 1: Max 1 hr. (2.30 – 3.30 pm)
Strategy: 5-6 major themes have been chosen. The presenters will do a 7 minute presentation on each theme.
