GLOBAL TALENT SUMMIT

Fewer students are graduating with the skills needed for the jobs AI and robotics are either replacing or re-creating. Many companies and entire countries are now confronted with significant talent shortages. According to a PwC report in 2015, 73% of CEOs surveyed see skills shortages as a key business threat. Given the essential role of human capital in the coming expansion, a global war for talent is beginning and will intensify.

The Global Talent Summit (GTS) is the premier space for multi-disciplinary stakeholders from the private sector, policy, academia/education, and innovation to come together to discuss the trends and solutions for the future of work and education, and for closing the global skills gap. GTS—on its 6th year now—has convened over 2500 strategists, key opinion leaders, and relevant stakeholders to shape the future of talent through education, innovation, and recruitment.
