How Businesses Can Develop Trust on a
Global Scale Through Corporate Service
(Technology + Entrepreneurship) ^ Corporate Service = Δ Social Impact
Today, the Internet has made global flows of information, capital and innovation possible as never before. How do we use technologies, economies, entrepreneurship and corporate service to make organizations smarter and build trust on a global scale across borders, time zones and cultural expectations? A distinguished panel of experts will examine how governments, NGOs, educational institutions, and private corporations have increased social capacity by successfully applying technology and entrepreneurship to public service. In addition to improving society, the panel will discuss the unique benefits their organizations derive by fostering innovative public service.
PANEL: – Stanley Litow, Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Corporate Responsibility, IBM
– Dr. Augustine Mahiga, Permanent Representative of the United Republic of Tanzania to
the United Nations.
