About the Future Forum
Following consultation with influential business leaders, the FT saw a need to challenge senior executives by providing a wider understanding of the political, economic, social and technological developments that will affect businesses in years to come.
Members take part in a monthly events programme, designed and curated by senior FT editors and commentators, which feature world-class speakers. Supporting reports and guides can be shared across members’ businesses. The events and supporting materials are designed to equip senior executives with a sharper strategic outlook to face challenges of the future.
In 2020, the Future Forum will launch a business Think Tank to explore undercurrents and emerging trends seek to define, explore and solve the biggest challenges businesses will face in years to come.
The Future Forum think tank will invite experts from member companies to contribute in workshops and consultations. This will feed into reports, and will be shared throughout the global leadership community.
