Implement Thought Leaders 2021

Fit for humans,

Fit for the future

2020 was an extraordinary year. Beyond the unprecedented challenges and disruptions, it was also a year that gave us the opportunity to ask new questions of ourselves and our future.

On Thursday 25 March, joined by a global audience, we explored two fundamental questions in the company of distinguished thought disrupters Gary Hamel, influential thinker and best-selling author of ‘Humanocracy’.

  1. How can we tackle the worthwhile problems our society and planet are facing?
  2. How can we start movements that can create the change we need to see?

Leaders of pioneering organisations – such as Novo Nordisk, Unilever, Ørsted, Danfoss and Tony’s Chocolonely, and Bjarke Ingels the architectural visionary and mastermind behind Masterplanet: a plan for an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable planet – also joined us to share their unique perspectives and experiences.

The event was hosted by Susan Salzbrenner, partner and human catalyst at Implement Consulting Group, and Stig Albertsen, the chairman of the board.
