PowerTalk ESG Series #3 – ESG + ‘T’: Global Megatrends To Watch Out For

Andrea Bonime-Blanc, JD/PhD
Founder & CEO, GEC Risk Advisory, U.S.A

The last of the 3-day ESG Series, this session will focus on the five global ESG (environmental, social, governance) and technology megatrends (what she calls the ESGT Megatrends) that are key to successful business futureproofing.

Based on Andrea’s work serving on and advising international boards and c-suites, as well as her books Gloom to Boom: How Leaders Transform Risk into Resilience and Value (Routledge 2020) and The ESGT Megatrends Manual 2022-2023 (Diplomatic Courier 2022), she will describe the latest ESGT Megatrends that are essential for resilient and sustainable corporate risk and opportunity governance for companies everywhere.

Drawing upon why successful governance in the coming years of continuous risk and crisis management requires such an ESG plus T approach, the session will conclude with a high-level overview of Andrea’s practical leadership to do’s – the 2022-2023 Leadership ESGT Blueprint.
