The next Business Transformation Summit edition will be inspired by the theme “Impact”.

Whether you’re a start-up entrepreneur or the CEO of a Fortune500 legacy company, the challenges you face come in all shapes and sizes: meagre growth, limited resources for unlimited demands, growing market expectations alongside growing environmental concerns, the list goes on and on…. To overcome these ever escalating challenges, our understanding of what constitutes business success needs to be redefined. Leaders and companies need to allow themselves to deliver a positive impact for their customers, employees, business partners, society and the planet at large, rather than only for their shareholders.

When average day to day business becomes yesterday’s news, and to be part of the future you need to strive for social impact, human connection and extraordinary business performance, how do we redefine strategies from profit maximization to sustainability maximization? How to move from business effectiveness to business excellence while creating a cultures of greatness from within and designing a journey of constant development and readiness for change? How can leaders empower their teams towards the type of lifelong learning that enables levels of extraordinary productivity? How do we conciliate organisational ambitions and performance targets with sustainability goals? How do we recalibrate wealth creation with environment renewal?

Pioneer organisations from all sectors are leading the way, showing us how through Business Transformation we can all do better by being better, do good by being good, by playing a relevant role in this global call to action that aims to conciliate Business Performance with Sustainable Development Goals, positively impacting the planet, the lives and the future of everyone, everywhere.

Feedback from previous editions

The themes were very relevant and crucial to the future of business in terms of robots, innovation and digitalisation. The speakers brought a very knowledgeable and interesting point of view. I really enjoyed the event.

Sandra Passos

I really enjoyed Martin Lindstrom's presentation about the importance of Big Data, in a much more human and much more focused perspective, on what we are as human beings. I really liked the way it was presented.

Duarte Abreu

It was very interesting, especially the connection between the various presentations. I didn't know Prof. Manuela Veloso very well and in fact it was a great pride to have this lady as a speaker at the event and representing Portugal in the USA.

It was an extremely interesting event, full of dazzling conferences and fantastic speakers. I highlight the approach they took and the focus they gave to the human component, extremely important and full of possibilities in this era of technology, which will allow us, for example, to have numerous new professions in the future.

Paula Guerra

As a retail company, our big mission is to focus on the customer; therefore, understanding the transformation of the customer experience is very important. We also know that people are at the heart of our company, so as HR, my interest also goes through understanding the Employer Experience.

I really enjoyed the contact with new and fresh visions on the area of talent attraction and talent retention. It was an incredible experience, I really liked it.

Inês Pedro

I particularly liked the first presentation, the approach around innovation and technology, as this is an area that interests me and that makes a real contribution to our daily work.

Conceição Martins

It was very inspiring! We talk a lot about Big Data, but we need to change the mindset, because we don't need to have most customers asking for something to make sense to implement it.

Cláudia Gomes

The event presented very interesting topics that compelled us to reflect on how companies can become more digital when it comes to their HR. This is an event where we can network with people who work in the same area and meet colleagues, so congratulations to CEGOC for this fabulous event!
