Join GIBS experts Prof.Lyal White, Matthew Birtch, Abdullah Verachia, Professor Nick Binedell and Adrian Kitimbo as they reflect on key lessons from Davos and how these will impact on business in Africa and the BRICS countries. 2016 has got off to a bumpy start with a resurgence of geopolitical turmoil and increasing volatility in stock markets across the global and especially in key emerging markets. Is China's slow down as bad as some suggest? Will there be an upturn in the oil price and how will a recovery in the oil market impact us here in South Africa? How can we learn from countries like India which seem to be fairing far better? What is the role of innovate and technology in all of this? We will examine the key themes from Davos, and assess how business can remain relevant in a climate of change and uncertainty.
