    highly competitive among cities and they require strategies that will enable them to differentiate the attractions they offer on a global not just a national stage Cities are where all five megatrends most obviously collide Rapid urbanisation is placing significant pressure on natural resources creating tension between the rich and the poor and generating challenges of overcrowding congestion and pollution On the other hand cities generate economic growth cultural creativity technological breakthroughs political innovation and practising environmental sustainability Today as technology forces us to re think some of the economic reasons for having a large workforce in a central location cities have a new appeal People today want to live in cities rather than being economically compelled to do so Access to amenities a higher quality of life social cultural and leisure opportunities all attract people to cities These changes present complex and potentially far reaching implications for businesses In order to gain access to the pools of talent businesses may need to move into or even back into the cities that they left decades ago The result is seen in downtown areas that were deserted during the latter part of the 20th century being reborn as dynamic and thriving urban centres Watch Ian Powell s Rapid urbanisation video Why do you think it s so important that leaders from all parts of the world come together in Davos at the annual meeting The world has to come to a shared understanding and consensus on how it wants to address humanitarian economic and social issues as a global community Events such as the WEF Annual Meeting provide opportunities for representatives from all over the world to voice concerns and brainstorm solutions to address these universal challenges and hopefully take steps together towards creating a better world for future generations What

  • Our leaders at Davos – Bob Moritz: PwC
    What is one key thing that business leaders should bear in mind as they revolutionise their businesses As more people and businesses connect via digital platforms trust is a key component of the success of the new marketplace and business models PwC research has found that 69 of consumers will not trust sharing economy companies until they are recommended by someone they trust In fact peer to peer review systems are becoming the new arbiters of quality It is also worth noting that a trusted brand is not only essential to building market share but also to attracting talented employees who can innovate and deliver new services For companies of all kinds the right talent combined with technology mastery is going to be another imperative for success One last consideration is the pace at which transformation is taking place Rapid change can raise questions and diminish the trust of both customers and employees This means sustaining and building trust is an important consideration for organisations seeking to revolutionise their businesses Watch Bob Moritz s Connected living video As part of this revolution how is technology changing our lives and that of future generations and reshaping the economic social ecological and cultural contexts in which we live New advances in technology continue to change our society and economy In fact CEOs cite technology as a top three most influential global trend across sectors in the next five years While presenting new obstacles and threats technology and increased digitalisation of our world will contribute to innovation and the ability to solve societal problems The public and private sector alike must learn how best to harness the potential of technology As part of this businesses must learn to operate in a new digital native society Transitioning business operations from traditional models to cloud based or more highly technological options is challenging but necessary In addition the sheer volume of data available is extraordinary Learning how to measure and leverage this data can lead to breakthrough innovations trends and stakeholder insights The combination of technology and other changes and trends is not only creating new risks and opportunities for business it s changing society s expectations as well We ve all seen how information when not managed appropriately or responded to can erode trust in institutions of all kinds from government to police forces to companies At a time in which trust is needed more than ever greater access to information both good and bad means trust in society s institutions is more fragile than ever Of course trust has always been important technology has always changed businesses and good leaders are always ahead of the curve in understanding the opportunities created as well as managing related risks Our upcoming CEO Survey release will provide insight into how leaders are thinking about and responding to the latest expression of these ongoing concerns As companies leverage technology to revolutionise how they do business PwC s 2015 Global Digital IQ Survey found that digital leaders take
