Be Curious

How will you define 2024?

Private Virtual Roundtable
29th November, 2-3pm GMT (3-4pm CET)

By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.”

Benjamin Franklin

2023 has been marked by an unparalleled wave of innovation and a whirlwind of unpredictable changes that have reshaped the business landscape. And as we look towards 2024, we are already anticipating more of the same:

• Groundbreaking developments in AI will lead to 40% of organisations to increase their investment in new AI tools in 2024 [McKinsey, 2023].
• The EU’s new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive, starting in 2024, will dramatically transform the way that organisations are expected to prioritise and report on sustainability initiatives.
Resilience is set to become the key concern for not only boardrooms but also governments across Europe, as threat actors become increasingly effective at identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities [Forbes, 2023].

The challenge is, no-one has a crystal ball. Predicting how technology is going to evolve, how industries and markets will transform and how the role of a leader will shift is no easy task. But for the disruptive leader, there is always opportunity in uncertainty.

So, whilst we cannot control or predict the future, we have the power to be disruptive. Join us for the final time in 2023 as we meet to discuss the biggest challenges awaiting us in the year ahead, and to answer the question: how will you be disruptive in 2024 and beyond?



I'm happy to be contacted by the club's founding partner, Verizon. I understand I can opt-out at any time.*

Pathfinder, a community of business leaders, is supported by our club partner Verizon. The aim: to learn from one another by enabling cross-industry conversations, to discuss what might be around the corner and how we must adapt. With the event series running for nearly 2 years, members are encouraged to look beyond the horizon towards radical solutions that make a sustainable difference. Through collaboration and peer insights our community support each other on the journey of personal growth and leadership.

Our Sustainability Pledge

We’re committed to supporting our society and environment. When you attend a Pathfinder event, we pledge to offset your travel or energy usage by planting a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see the maths and learn more here:
