About This Event

CEOs, heads of office, and other select C-suite executives from corporate partner companies are invited to participate in quarterly meetings co-hosted by Council president Ivo H. Daalder and Council board chair and William Blair CEO John Ettelson.

These executives-only meetings provide an opportunity for business leaders to participate in timely, business-relevant global policy discussions and hear directly from the Council’s bench of experts. They also provide a platform to showcase executive leadership in a room of peers, customers, service providers, and clients. From NAFTA to national security, immigration to climate change – insights from these discussions offer companies the competitive edge they need to thrive in an increasingly global economy.

In light of new survey results gathered alongside The Harris Poll, Sam Kling will lead a dynamic discussion around the resiliency and future outlook of our global cities, how this could impact the corporate world moving forward, and how your business can adapt.

Learn more about these quarterly meetings and other benefits of corporate partnership.
