The CMC International Conference “Making a Sustainable World: Creative thinking, Digital revolution, Friendly & disruptive innovation” will be organized together with APCO – the Italian MC Institute – and will take place in Milan (Italy), on October 18- 19th, 2018.
On the morning of October 18th, keynote international speakers will focus on the strategic picture of priorities and drivers for ensuring a sustainable future, highlighting how this affects the Management Consulting industry. In the afternoon, two panels will take place: the first one focusing on best practices for the effective training in all aspects related to sustainability and the other one discussing best practices that have already been successfully experimented by MC with helping clients to move toward a more sustainable future. Both of them will open new scenarios for the management consulting industry through the witnesses that will be
presented. All participants will learn, take inspirations and share ideas with the key players for new strategies, models and tools useful to add new value to their clients.
The Conference will continue on October 19th, with office visits to three firms that have made significant steps in their migration to a more sustainable way of doing business.
Participants divided into three groups, one for each company, will be welcomed by the presentation of the best practices adopted by them and the results in the respective business sectors. Subsequently, under the guidance of expert session leaders, participants will engage in group work to analyze the strategic options to achieve the objectives of economic, environmental and social sustainability in light of internal and external factors that influence sustainability achievement.
The synthesis of the group work will be presented in the afternoon in plenary with the aim of drawing the strategic lines for an increasingly participatory “governance” that harmonizes the three lines of sustainability analyzed, leveraging on strengths such as creative thinking, digital revolution and innovation, highlighting opportunities and points still open.
Management consultants will have the opportunity to discuss these issues in an international scenario, while young people will become familiar with best practices to build a sustainable world.
