Global Presidents’ Forum 2022 – Summary Report

This report summarises the suggestions and input from the annual Global Presidents’ Forum, held in November 2022.

Key findings

The report condenses suggestions and input from executive leaders around the world on the following questions:

  • What does the future balance between in-person/on-site and remote/on-line learning look like?
  • Based on that future balance, are there assumptions that the OFDL community makes about modern day OFDL environments that create vulnerability? How do those assumptions create risk, threaten the resiliency, or undermine the potential future of OFDL?
  • With these assumptions in mind, what do future OFDL environments need to integrate to protect against vulnerabilities and ensure resiliency long term? What fundamental changes need to be made to OFDL environments to integrate those changes?
