Re-imagining the Future Together. Leading Beyond Covid

29 September 2021

Covid-19 has reshaped the world of work and possibly the world at large. In the ELP Annual Leadership Conference 2021 we will explore how work, life, business, government and politics will re-emerge after the immediate threat of the virus has subsided. Are we able and willing to use the crisis as a portal to a better future and leave the elements of the past behind us that we don’t want anymore? The Indian novelist Arundhati Roy: “Nothing could be worse than a return to normality. Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next”, she wrote in The Financial Times in April 2020. “We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and our hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world.” What do you choose?

At the ELP Annual Conference we will dive deep into questions like:

Why join?

  1. Be inspired by great speakers on leadership from a societal, an organizational and a personal perspective.
  2. Engage with peers and speakers to share ideas on how to create a desirable future.
  3. Reflect on your role as a leader in the changes you want to see in society.
  4. And.. use your leadership for creating a better world within your own context.
