G1 Global Conference

The 7th G1 Global Conference was held on Monday, September 18, 2017, at the GLOBIS Tokyo campus. More than 200 global business leaders, politicians, scholars, media members and MBA students from 20 countries joined and discussed the theme, “Creative Evolution in a Volatile World.”

We kicked off discussing Japan as a potential role model and its interaction with the world. We had lunch workshops for the first time. We ended with design thinking and a great dialogue with Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi.

In the end, despite a “volatile” typhoon, we discovered some great ways to creatively evolve ourselves. As Minister Hayashi said, a first step can be to “agree to disagree” and work together to create a culture that embraces a diversity of opinions. This diversity embraces the vision of G1—“Group of One, Globe is One.
