Combining a line-up of A-list speakers with thought-provoking topics and trends, this year's One Big Day theme was resilience. While change is not a new phenomenon, the current speed and scale of change and disruption to the status quo is unprecedented and requires individuals, companies, economies and cities and to become increasingly resilient.

Our 2017 conference looked to the future and explored how resilience could be harnessed to enhance business growth and shared prosperity.

Topics explored on the day included:

  • How cities have come and gone – what makes a city resilient
  • Corporate resilience: forget the three-year plan, think ‘100-year plan’
  • Resilience in the cognitive era
  • The sharing economy: new trend or here to stay?
  • Personal resilience: tools and techniques to improve individual resilience
