It’s minus 3 here in Davos and I’m surrounded by thought-provoking debates and discussions on globalisation and co-operation.
Platforms are where real growth is now happening, in a climate otherwise characterised by huge levels of uncertainty, disruption and change. Algorithms, new data types and developments in design are making these businesses more and more utilised, and hence valuable. A key challenge is how and where to invest.
Davos is a global shop window for investors to browse through the opportunities.
CMS will be livestreaming our reception at 3pm CET today, which features a one-one-one with Sheryl Sandberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook Inc, and Christian Sewing, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Bank AG.
There’s also a panel discussion, with a stellar line-up including Craig Dawson (Executive Partner, IBM Automation Platform Leader Europe), Olivier Grémillon (Vice President, Booking.com), Annabelle Gawer (Chaired Professor in Digital Economy; Director, Surrey Centre of Digital Economy) and my esteemed colleague Dóra Petrányi, a Partner at CMS.
Join it here.
CMS, together with one of Germany’s leading weekly newspapers DIE ZEIT, is hosting an exclusive reception on 23 January 2019 in Davos. This year the topic is “The Power of the Platform: A New Business Model”.
