The Future of Business Event 2023

17 May 2023 - 17:00

Welcome to The Future of Business 2023 from Wavelength, M&C Saatchi LIFE and Mullwood

An invitation-only dinner session exploring the three key drivers of the Future of Business:

  • Sustainability
  • Technology
  • Leadership

No organisation is immune to the disruptive changes sweeping across all industries and sectors. Profoundly disruptive new technologies such as Generative AI (Chat GPT), trends like The Great Resignation and existential threats like climate change and the resulting ESG goals are providing businesses with unparalleled challenges.

Wavelength have invited three very special guests to share their unique perspective on these highly pertinent topics:

  • Hilary Berg, Head of Strategy at M&C Saatchi LIFE and renowned Sustainability speaker;
  • Zoe Scaman, one of the world’s leading experts on AI and Technology;
  • Tim Munden, former Chief Learning Officer at Unilever and thought-leader on Purpose and Leadership.

The evening will be moderated by Tessa Murray, a world-class moderator and former Director of Tortoise Media.

Joining Zoe, Hilary and Tim will be a curated gathering of highly accomplished leaders from Wavelength’s eco-system and our co-hosts Mullwood and M&C Saatchi LIFE.

We’re delighted to welcome you to this special evening of inspiration, ideas and new connections.
