This week, Barri Rafferty, senior partner and director, New York, is blogging from the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland.
Going with the flow has become my mantra at Davos. After starting the day with a change of plans when my car got stuck in snow and I unexpectedly met some people who were also attending Davos, I am realizing that the unscripted moments may be the most important ones.
And considering some of the key themes so far at what people are saying is the snowiest Davos ever, staying calm and keeping an open mind is essential. The mood encompasses a pessimistic point of view on the economy and worries that business and government leaders may not have the courage to make the changes needed for real transformation.
