GCC Board Directors Institute 9th Board Chair Summit

22 October 2024

Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudia Arabia

"GCC Transforms: Driving Change"

Embracing Global Shifts

Global shifts are redefining the region's economic trajectory. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) imperatives, and the pervasive influence of global inflation emphasise the pivotal role that effective governance plays in steering businesses through this era of unprecedented change.

Incorporating these shifts within their 2030 visions, the GCC has been investing heavily in sectors like technology, renewable energy, and tourism to reduce dependency on oil. Embracing these changes has progressively opened up their markets to foreign investment and trade, recognised the interconnectedness of global markets, and aligns with global trends towards economic liberalisation.

Join us at our 9th Annual Board Chair Summit, GCC BDI's flagship event. The Board Chair Summit is a platform where we gather Ministers, influential chairmen, business leaders and actors, and regulators of the GCC to stimulate dialogue on key governance and board issues of today's economic climate to raise awareness and enhance governance practices in the region.

This year's theme is on GCC Transforms: Driving Change, where we discuss current market trends and how the GCC embraces the changes and adapts them to their 2050 vision, particularly in the Kingdom. Topics covered include governance, ESG, cybersecurity, and AI, to name a few.

The Summit comprises a series of keynote speakers and panel discussions on various topics of importance to Board Chairs while also offering an excellent platform for senior business leaders to network, discuss, and share experiences with peers and delve into a discussion on how robust governance frameworks can serve as a requirement for businesses to adapt, innovate, and thrive amid the evolving global landscape.

The Summit will provide corporate leaders in the GCC with invaluable insights into navigating the shifting sands of international trade and investments, and will equip decision-makers in the GCC with the foresight and strategic acumen needed to harness transformative trends for sustainable growth in an era defined by dynamic shifts and unprecedented challenges.
