Summits & Events

LNW’s events help leaders learn about the business and operating models of the future, and how to improve outcomes and value through organizational transformation.

LNW summits and learning programs are particularly focused on the global “capacity challenge” – an environment in which every pressing challenge we have – generating better government outcomes, building efficient markets and private enterprises, ensuring economic development and security, sustaining the environment, redesigning healthcare, improving education, etc. – requires melding together organizational and technological innovations in ways that transform our societal capacity to respond and act.
