This Summit is not a typical conference. Instead of being organized as an array of panels and presentations, it is structured as a participant driven, action-oriented gathering—an interactive experience that harnesses the deep knowledge, wisdom and creativity of all delegates to generate new thinking and catalyze collaborative action. Every delegate will have the opportunity to be both speaker and audience.

Senior executives from the following organizations are some of the confirmed delegates. If you are registered to attend the Summit, you will be provided access to the full delegate list via a conference portal which allows you to communicate with other participants in advance of the gathering.
