PwC and the World Economic Forum have been strategic partners since the mid-1980s. We support the Forum in its mission to create a global community of leaders who are committed to improving the state of the world.
As a strategic partner, PwC is also a knowledge provider for the Annual Meeting at Davos, as well as at selected regional summits held by the Forum throughout each year. We also collaborate with the Forum on various cross-industry initiatives. PwC recently advised on the Forum’s Strategic Infrastructure Initiative, and contributed to a new report on planning and delivering infrastructure. We’re currently industry advisor to the following Forum initiatives: the Global Energy Access Partnership and the Resilience Practices Exchange.
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos brings together prominent individuals from business, government, academia and the media to discuss pressing global issues. Every year, PwC launches its Annual Global CEO survey with the media and in discussion sessions with CEOs attending the meeting.
Our 16th Annual Global CEO Survey was launched on 22 January 2013. You can watch Dennis Nally, Chairman of PwC International Ltd., reveal key findings from the survey in this replay of the live webcast from Davos.
PwC also provides KnowledgeConcierge, a website that provides key data for various meetings, including Davos. The site includes 'Fast Facts', a series of snapshots designed to give meeting participants easy-to-read insights and to help inform the debate around some of today's most challenging global issues.
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting of the New Champions – widely known as ‘Summer Davos’ – is the most important global business gathering in Asia.
The 2012 meeting, which brought together over 2,000 participants from more than 86 countries, included a keynote address from the People's Republic of China Premier Wen Jiabao.
Dennis Nally, Chairman of PwC International Ltd, shared his views in a session titled: 'Strategic Shifts: The Future of Human Capital'. You can access a recording of the session replay here.
