At the inaugural Oliver Wyman Forum event, senior leaders across all sectors explored how to respond to the world's toughest problems in today's environment of geo-political change and de-globalization. These conversations, conducted under Chatham House Rules, were open, compelling, and personal.
Our keynote speakers were George Osborne, Editor of the Evening Standard and former Chancellor of the Exchequer; and Shriti Vadera, Chairwoman of Santander UK and a former UK government minister
Sixty leaders from the C-suite, government, and academia attended, including John Flint (Group Chief Executive, HSBC); Charlotte Hogg (Chief Executive, Visa Europe); Alex Chisholm (Permanent Secretary, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy); Paul Grimwood (Non-Executive Chairman, Nestlé USA); Will Hutton (Principal, Hertford College, University of Oxford and Chair, Big Innovation Centre); and Jasmin Whitbread (Chief Executive, London First).
