The Second Global Conference on Creating Value invites business leaders and leading academics from around the world to exchange views and to share and learn from each other regarding how value can be created for the future of business and society. The plenary sessions, invited speakers and paper presentations will provide an opportunity for a meaningful discussion and conversation between academics and practitioners about the meaning of value and value creation opportunities not only for business and companies, but also for individuals and society at large.
