Welcome to the ELP Annual Leadership Conference 2018

Many executives benefit from globalization and digitization. They are cosmopolitan, socially liberal, internationalist and comfortable with change. They share in the fruits of the growing world economy and experience that they are better off every year.

However, there is a large group of people with existential insecurity, leading a life of unstable labor and living. They cannot be certain that their jobs will remain or don’t have any jobs at all. They feel they are bearing the burden of changes they haven’t asked for. Moreover, inequality is rising worldwide. For example, 82 percent of the wealth created in 2017 went to the top 1 percent of the world population. Eight individuals own the same wealth as the poorest 3.6 bln people on our planet, according to Oxfam Novib.

“You cannot be successful in a world that fails”, says Feike Sijbesma, CEO of DSM. What can and should business leaders and politicians do to create a future in which everyone feels included?

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”

From: ‘A Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens

Meeting different people, experience different ways of thinking, get inspired with novel trends, and meet people from outside your daily routine in a safe, non-judgemental environment.

We visit the ELP conference because we think it's necessary to co-create a compelling story for leadership in the century of Homo Deus.

> I have had many engaging, creative and inspiring sessions at the ELP conference. The breadth of topics covered is impressive; so is the depth at which the topics are interrogated. The colleagues I have met have remained an invaluable source of professional and personal insight, experience and support which I treasure to this day.

'ELP's Annual Conferences have provided me with insights into more fundamental issues and developments, often with a long-lasting impact'.

Frank SchreveNon-Executive, former CEO

The annual conference offers the best of multiple worlds. It’s an inspiring event circling around trending leadership topics. It provides a space to reflect upon your own leadership style and behavior. It offers you an opportunity to communicate with kindred spirits who are in the same boat . And if all that is not enough, it’s rounded off with a good glass and fine food. I say: not to be missed!

After each ELP session I go home with a few nuggets. Whether it's the speaker(s) or one of the other participants during dinner, there is always something that 'disturbs' me and that I take home. A nugget.
