Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella seems to have things planned out well for trips to Europe: after giving a talk at Microsoft UK’s partner conference Future Decoded (where he showed off his “iPhone Pro“), we now have news from Times of India that Nadella is co-chairing in the next World Economic Forum (WEF) set to happen in January, in Davos, Switzerland.
The WEF’s annual conference gathers the foremost leaders of society in politics, business and others to shape global, regional and industry agendas. The theme of the next event will be ‘Mastering the Fourth Industrial Revolution”. More than 2,500 leaders worldwide are expected to attend the event.
“There are many challenges in the world today, and I feel that one of the most intense and impactful will be shaping the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ — driven by the speed, the breadth and the complete ‘systems innovation’ of technological change underway” – WEF Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.
Aside from Nadella, the board of the forum also includes CEOs from other international corporations and organizations in a wide range of industries, such as General Motors, Hitachi, Credit Suisse, and the International Trade Union Confederation.
