THE INVENTION OF TOMORROW

Crafting Our New Collective Narrative

Since the inception of KMF, themes have been discussed ranging from a new context where uncertainty is normality to the need to generate growth with inclusion in an age of paradox; to whether or not good stewardship based on the political economy of location, environment, and demographics can overcome geography as destiny; to the juxtaposition between Artificial Intelligence and Human Intelligence; and most recently, to how we can ‘Build our Collective Brain’ to engender better outcomes for markets, firms, economies and, most importantly, societies.

The KMF2021 theme is: ‘The Invention of Tomorrow: Crafting Our New Collective Narrative’. In upholding KMF traditions, panel discussions will continue to be organised along four core sessions: how various markets globally are affected; what the theme means to firms, and society at large; what are the imperatives of leadership and people.
