Business Innovation Leadership and Technology Conference Series

Architecting for Global Good: The Role of Business and Technology

Call for speakers now open

Submission Deadline: September 25th 2020

19th November 2020



The theme for our 19th November 24-hour event is Architecting for Global Good: The Role of Business and Technology. A confluence of events, drivers, trends and shifting perspectives point to new ways of leveraging business and technology for the global good. The coexistence of profit and purpose is proving to be a reality, climate action plans and sustainability concerns have moved up on the business agenda, and with continued shifts from shareholder focus to stakeholder focus, the very purpose of business is being revisited. But make no mistake, these efforts are not all about doing good for the sake of doing good – they have real business benefits. This includes new market opportunities, greater long-run shareholder profits, more customers and increased loyalty, supply chain reliability, better employee retention and attraction, public goodwill, and business longevity to name just a few.

Together we are all architecting our future world every day. The intent of our November BIL-T conference is to bring together futurists, thought leaders, business and technology leaders, architects, designers and other world-changers to have critical conversations on these important topics and to envision a world that we all want to live in and leave for the next generations. With a focus on the role of business and technology, we will explore the big questions such as: As one of the most powerful mechanisms for change, what should the role of businesses be in serving stakeholders and even driving greater societal change? How can technology solve some of the world’s greatest challenges? How can architecture make these ideas a reality? What is our role as individuals in this change?
