The Global Summit Tokyo

Bringing CEOs and Thought Leaders Together

In order to drive positive change across the industry and around the world, it’s important we communicate with people at the top; the decision makers. It is for this reason that our flagship event – The Global Summit – is a C-level summit that moves between developed and emerging markets, and that provides a 360 degree vision for the entire consumer goods industry. Bringing together personalities from not only the business world, but also political, economic and social environments, it is the perfect setting for CEOs and senior executives to better understand the global landscape and exert influence over the major issues facing the consumer goods business worldwide. Delegates also get first-hand updates on the progress we are making towards implementing our resolutions, and other ongoing projects, from the CEOs responsible for driving these efforts.

Supporting Your Future Leaders

Aside from the more obvious role of getting our members involved in shaping the industry agenda through collaborative efforts, we also support the future development of your brightest young managers through The Future Leaders Congress. A smaller, more personal event than The Global Summit, our “junior summit” is designed specifically for young managers from within the industry. It includes strategic, operational and leadership modules for an interactive learning experience in an international setting. With workshops including the delegate-favourite “Design a Supermarket” competition, this event works alongside those internal development programmes already being run by companies and provides delegates with an unmatched experience.

The Summit Committee
