Event Overview

The Global Boardroom returns for its third edition to discuss the practical steps governments, business and finance can take to build a resilient, sustainable recovery, more than a year into a crisis that has crippled the global economy and fundamentally changed the way we live, work and communicate. Across three days and spanning multiple time zones, the FT’s top journalists will discuss these issues in a series of live online conversations with over 150 speakers, including leading policy-makers, CEOs and investors, in order to design and debate the most effective post-pandemic strategies for a world transformed by crisis.
