Whether board of management members at DAX companies, SME pioneers or innovative start-up entrepreneurs, we bring the top decision makers and catalysing forces of the German business world together with the VORDENKER COMMUNITY. In the process, community members become the ones challenging the leadership elites of today. WirtschaftsWoche and The Boston Consulting Group invite the Vordenker to events where they meet with the jury and catalysing forces from the business world to discuss important decisions for the future. These events provide the opportunity for the Vordenker to chat with an executive manager off the record.

Each challenge is unique, new and offers useful insight, including into other industries, unfamiliar policy areas and highly topical social issues.

The first challenge is scheduled to take place in November 2016, when the VORDENKER COMMUNITY and the leaders of today will meet to address the topic of “Innovation & Diversity”.

A preselected executive manager will take questions and report on his or her personal experiences and challenges.

We will additionally invite two catalysing forces from the business world to provide fresh perspectives during conversations. The findings of the panel will be included in the evening.
